Call For Entries

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 (July 2019): Beverly Bassford Memorial juried group show. Artist’s choice of theme. Exhibit juror: Jinchul Kim. Artwork drop off: Sunday June 30, 2-4pm and Monday July 1, 10-12. (click here for details)

Poster Contest for Harbor Day at the Docks: Submit your artwork for a chance to be featured on this year’s poster. Artwork must pertain to the harbor and/or fishing industries and image must be 300dpi. Please email to Deadline July 1. (click here for details)

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.
