Due to the risks of Covid-19, we have decided to forego our Juried Art Show for 2020. We hope that it will be safe for us to resume this show at a later date.
We are so happy to announce the winners of our 39th juried art show. To all of our brave-hearted artists who entered, thank you. We appreciate your courage. To all the ribbon recipients, congratulations!

The Caswell Council for the Arts is pleased to present an annual Juried Art Show to be held at the Lee Fowlkes Gallery at 43 W. Main St. in Yanceyville, NC.
We accept entries from adult artists throughout North Carolina and Virginia working in two-dimensions (paintings, drawings, etchings, etc.). The show offers significant cash awards, professional judging and an exhibition at the Lee Fowlkes Gallery. An opening reception and awards ceremony are included in the show.
We encourage all eligible artists to submit, and ask that you please help us to spread the word so that we may include as many local artists as possible.
