The Arts Council of Midland would like to invite you to submit your artwork for exhibition in our first annual “The Open Show”. This is a local open call show and artists from around the area are welcome to submit their work. Most visual art mediums are accepted (painting, photography, prints, fiber art, collage, drawing, sculpture) except for performance art, installations, sound and video art (electronic media). Juried Art Awards with prize money are available, and the two artists who are awarded “Best in Show” and “First Place” will have an opportunity to present a dual show at ACM.
