Open-Juried Exhibits: These exhibits are opened to anyone, anywhere–domestic and international. You do not need to be a member with Cape Cod Art Center. You must submit your image(s) to Smarter Entry. Up to 5 entries are allowed to be uploaded to Smarter Entry. Each piece is associated with a fee at the CCAC member price or the non-member price. The judges will select which work will be physically hung in the exhibit. Everyone who is selected to exhibit at Cape Cod Art Center will be notified via email of acceptance and the due date for artwork receiving day. After all the artwork is received at Cape Cod Art Center, the same judges come to the gallery and select the awards.
All Open Juried Exhibit entries are to be submitted to SmarterEntry
