Jury Process:


The panelists are seven locals chosen by invitation. They are drawn from a pool of gallery owners, professional artists, and Rochester community members. Submitted images will be displayed along with your brief description of your work, with no mane attached. All images in a particular category are previewed; scoring takes place during a second, in-depth viewing. Jurors individually score each entry on a scale from one to five.

The five highest scores in each category are invited to be in a downtown business exhibition. The first prizes in each category will receive a financial award at the reception at the G-24 art gallery. 

IMPORTANT: All artwork should have a professional finish- WIRED to be ready for hanging. After that, your art will return to be picked up at G-24. You'll have three weeks to pick up your art.
