Summer Art Show (Ages 18+)

Summer Art Show

Come and be a part of the excitement at the 10th Annual Adult Art Show, hosted by the Alachua County Library District!

This year, we are offering two ways to showcase your talent. You can enter your artwork virtually or drop it off at the Headquarters Library location between July 1 and July 30, 2023, to have it displayed on the Foundation Room wall. We welcome a diverse range of submissions, including paintings, photography, mixed media, and 3D artwork.

Once all submissions are in, staff will cast their votes, and on Tuesday, August 8, 2023, we will announce the top three artworks online.

For all the details, please take a moment to review our guidelines and join us in celebrating the vibrant artistic community of the Alachua County Library District.
