Art accepted as part of this annual exhibition must be innovative and challenging to both the viewer and the artist. Accepted artists will have pushed the boundaries of what art can be– stylistically, conceptually, or technically– and will challenge the viewer to see the world through a new lens. Accepted work will feature non-traditional material, conceptual thinking and demonstrate a high level of technical skill. Artwork must have been created since January 1, 2023 and not previously displayed in Summit Artspace.
