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.
Current Calls for Entry:

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.
