2020 Spring Into Art Update
Thank you for your patience as we revise the 2020 Spring Into Art Exhibition schedule. The Turner Center is looking forward to springing into art with you at the biggest art celebration of the year. We are pleased to announce that the application deadline has been moved to Thursday, April 16, and the Gala has been changed to Monday, May 11. This information and other important date changes are included in the postcard that has been mailed to artists. Again, thank you for enduring these changes with us. Together, we will make this the best Spring Into Art event yet!

The Annual Spring Into Art Exhibition provides artists of all levels with the opportunity to participate in a truly unique art exhibition. This unique art exhibition is open to all artists (18+) who work in most any medium. Selections for awards are based on a dual-judge review, which will be conducted without knowledge of the artists’ identity, title or price of work. The judges are carefully selected for their knowledge and ability to judge works based on merit alone. Participating artists are welcome free of charge, and are permitted one additional guest with the $60 entry fee option. Tickets to the Gala are available for purchase at $45 each.
