Submit work for this exhibition

The Scarab Club invites submissions for its Snowden Exhibition (formerly called the Silver Medal Exhibition), an annual unthemed, all-media exhibition, open to all artists. As an artist, teacher, mentor and friend, few people had as great an impact on our community as Gilda Snowden. After her death in 2014, the SC began giving out the top prize for the Silver Medal exhibition in her honor. Beginning in 2018 the exhibition will be named for her.

The purpose of the Snowden Exhibition is to recognize the diversity and achievement of artists whose work shows creativity of concept, excellence of design and expertise of media; to display these works to regional audiences and to be an educational opportunity for students.

The Snowden Exhibition is an unthemed, all-media show, open to all artists with a deadline of January 14th. Students and SC members have a reduced entry fee of $20, and $25 for all other artists.
