Strathmore Annual Juried Exhibition: Night

Strathmore’s juried exhibition takes place in January and February every year. Applications for our next juried exhibition, Night, are open now—view the prospectus and apply by October 22, 2018!

Partner Juried Exhibitions

Strathmore also frequently collaborates with organizations who facilitate juried exhibitions in Mansion galleries, including the Miniature Painters, Sculptors & Gravers Society of Washington, DC and the Creative Crafts Council. Partner organizations directly manage their calls for entry.

Artist Critiques

New! In response to many local artists’ expressed need for opportunities to receive feedback on their work, Strathmore has organized an artist critique program. This program brings in notable facilitators to guide a small group of participating artists in a two-hour critique session. See upcoming sessions and register here.

Drawing for Art

Our biennial Drawing for Art is an exhibition and culminating benefit night in support of Visual Arts at Strathmore. Our next Drawing For Art will take place in 2019. If you are interested in participating, please contact for more information.


Artists Library

Artists may submit their portfolio to Strathmore to enter a pool of artists from which Strathmore invites to sell work in the Artists Library. Our Artist Library is located outside of the gift shop in the historic library original to the Mansion as renovated by the Corby family. The Artists Library presents artists' works on display for sale in wooden bins and the original library built-in cases. 2-D artworks, including original works on paper and giclée prints, are presented for sale in the bins. 3-D artworks, including sculpture, jewelry, vessels, and other craft work are presented in the cases and lighted and displayed among vintage books. More information on the Artists Library and the submission form are available here
