Strathmore Annual Juried Exhibition
Strathmore’s juried exhibition takes place in January and February every year, with a call for entry posted in the preceding summer.
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.
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 VisualArts@Strathmore.org for more information.
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 artist’s 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.
We rely on charitable gifts from individuals to sustain and expand our visual and performing arts experiences and arts education programs. Your gift will foster incredible social impact by allowing Strathmore to remain a strong and vibrant resource in your community.
