Centered on the Center 2024 is open to 200 artists 18 years or older. Local, regional, and national artists are encouraged to participate.
Artwork must be original print, drawing or painting, sculpture, photography, or video installation. Artists are limited to two submissions of original artwork completed in the last two years (2022-24).
Work previously exhibited in any HBAC exhibition is ineligible for submission. Large or open print editions, giclées, and seasonal crafts will not be accepted for exhibition. Artwork may not include live animals or decaying organic material.
There will be no negotiation between the artist and HBAC to place the works in a specific place or lit in a certain way. The Preparator will make all decisions as to placement and lighting which will be best for the entire exhibition. HBAC reserves the right to refuse work and terminate online profiles from the HBAC website and social media outlets without cause and exclusively at staff’s discretion.
