Each month one of the galleries at the Ocean City Center for the Arts features artwork by local and regional artists, many of whom are members of the Art League of Ocean City. This provides an opportunity for artists of all levels and mediums to show their work in a professional gallery. Cash prizes and ribbons are awarded by qualified art judges and artists may choose to sell their works.
Upcoming Group Show (Sept 2019): “Out of the Blue” group show. All media, entries must use the color blue. Artwork drop off: Sunday Sept 1, 2-4pm and Monday Sept 2, 10-12.
(Oct 2019): “Rise” group show, featuring female artists. Theme: rising above adversity and empowering women through art. One entry per artist. Artwork drop off: Sunday Sept 29, 2-4pm and Monday Sept 30, 10-12.
Because art appreciation is highly subjective, the ALOC makes every effort to select qualified judges from a variety of art professionals, working artists and gallery owners. All judges are expected to recognize quality works based on the artists’ understanding of the principles and elements of design and the ability to use their chosen media.
