The Badlands Art Show is an open show. An “open” show means that you do not have to pass a judge to get in the show. You must submit an ENTRY FORM prior to the show to have your work entered into the show.
The Badlands Art Association is a small group; this is our major event for the year. We do the show in order to offer artists of all abilities the opportunity to showcase their work and to give the public a chance to see the wide range of art being created in our area.
The student show is organized by our local elementary, middle, and high school art teachers. Students may enter 2 pieces of art work in the student section, grades K-3, 4-6, 7-9 and 10-12. Entry fees are $1 per piece entered. For student entry forms, use the contact form on our website or email keisha.sparks@ k12.nd.us
Anyone over age 15 is eligible to enter up to six works of art in the Professional or Amateur divisions. An Entry Fee will be charged per item entered, $7 for Professional or Amateur divisions. Work deemed inappropriate for this exhibit will not be hung. The final decision for hanging will be the Registrar’s.
