The Wright Museum of Art announces a call for artists for Beloit and Vicinity 2017, open to all artists residing in Wisconsin and neighboring states.

The Annual Beloit and Vicinity Exhibition has been recognized as one of the oldest regional juried art shows in Wisconsin. It is made possible with support from the Friends of the Wright Museum.
Original works executed by the artist which have not been previously displayed in a Beloit and Vicinity Exhibition are eligible. Paintings, sculpture, prints, drawings, textiles, performance pieces, and photographs are accepted. No dimension of any work may exceed seven feet. No weight may exceed 150 pounds. Artists are limited to three entries. Artists age 16-24 will be judged in a separate category, Beloit and Vicinity Emerging Artists.
