Juried Art Show 2018

2017 Juried Art Show

Now in its 33rd year, The Celebration of the Arts is proud to present the 22nd Annual Uxbridge Juried Art Show. The show is a multi-discipline arts exhibition created for the enjoyment of Uxbridge area residents. It showcases the richness of the artistic talent found in and around the Town of Uxbridge.

For artists, this is an amazing chance to have your work evaluated by prominent jurors, to measure your work against other entries, have it displayed at the beautiful council chambers in Uxbridge, and exposed to an audience of more than two hundred people over the week’s display, and perhaps to sell your work.

2017 was a banner year for the show. We had 110 artists submit 289 works with 55 displayed. 250 people attended the Gala Opening Reception and another 250 people visited the show during the week. And for just the second time, we published a show catalogue, our largest yet at 36 pages.
