Juried Artist Registry
This online registry is a public resource to connect artists, curators, and collectors to encourage the creation, exhibition, and promotion of artwork by Arkansas women artists.
The exhibit features work by Arkansas women artists whose submissions are independently and confidentially juried by arts professionals, and work by current ACNMWA awarded artists and exhibit participants who are automatically entered into the registry upon submission of required documentation.
Selected artwork with artist statements and web links is showcased online for a two-year period. The next application cycle will open in Summer of 2023. The juror for this round of applications is Ann Prentice Wagner, Ph.D., Jackye and Curtis Finch, Jr. Curator of Drawings at the Arkansas Art Center.
