Jury Details

ArtWalk in the Square is juried by arts professionals. They are looking for a consistent theme to the work, originality, and quality. Submitted images must be clear, sharp, and representative of what you will exhibit; rejected submissions are often due to poor quality images or photographs that have other elements (walls, frames) in the submission photo. Please be sure you follow submission requirements.

We heavily promote ArtWalk in the Square Online – via social media, through a substantial digital ad campaign. We promote our shows via online event calendars. In addition, we provide artists with the graphics to promote their participation in our show. We are planning an in person Preview in the Leslie Grove Gallery. More details to come
