CALL FOR ENTRIES

Sioux City Art Center Selects is a regional juried/curated exhibition with accompanying programing designed to create a more meaningful experience for both the selected artist and the audience; the call for submissions is open to all artists in Iowa, as well artists living within a

300-mileradius of Sioux City. Eight artists will be selected based on digital images of artwork, with specific selections for the exhibition chosen during follow-up studio visits. The goal of the exhibition is to showcase contemporary regional artists of superior quality, outstanding creativity, and displaying a consistency of aesthetic vision. The Sioux City Art Center organized the inaugural Sioux City Art Center Selects exhibition in 2016, hosting a second installation in 2019. The Sioux City Art Center is pleased to offer a third installation in 2021 with grant funding from the National Endowment for the Arts

In addition to the exhibition, during the opening weekend exhibiting artists will participate in a program called The Artistic Experience. Due to ongoing uncertainty about the Coronavirus Pandemic, plans for The Artistic Experience remain flexible. During the weekend of May 21-23, 2021, the selected artists will give presentations (either in person or via a digital platform) on the creative development of their work.

CALL FOR ART 

Artists currently living in South Dakota are invited to submit artworks for consideration for the South Dakota Governor’s 9th Biennial Art Exhibition. This juried traveling exhibition is the premier showcase for artists currently living in the state and is a celebration of the tremendous quality and unique diversity of visual art being produced here and now. The biennial exhibitions are important landmarks in South Dakota art history. The exhibition shares some of South Dakota’s best artworks and greatest artists with visiting audiences at multiple exhibiting institutions across the state through the course of the one-year traveling show. The catalog is an important historical record of the state’s current artists and art practices for future generations. Purchase Awards are opportunities for South Dakota artists to make their mark on South Dakota history by having their artworks collected and preserved within some of the state’s most significant public art collections. A limited number of artworks will be selected for this exhibition through a competitive process, juried by representatives of the exhibiting and collecting institutions. We encourage artists to submit their best artworks for consideration.
