Call for Artists: ACWL-Nuveen Juried Exhibition-2021

The Arts Council of White Lake – Nuveen Center is excited to announce a call for artists to submit work for the “ACWL-Nuveen Juried Exhibition – 2021” to be held March 18 – April 24. This show, formally known as “Change of Seasons” has received a name change to reflect a broader vision for the exhibit. We want to appeal to a wide spectrum of diverse artists creatively tackling a range of subjects and themes in a variety of mediums. This year the call has been expanded to include digital media. Although the name has changed the exhibit will still include adult and K-12 youth divisions with cash prizes awarded in both. Adult artists will be exhibited in the ACWL-Nuveen exhibit space and the youth artwork in our retail gallery. We feel both categories of this exhibit are vital as the ACWL-Nuveen is dedicated to accessibility and believes that creative expression is ageless.

Ms. Jackson received her B.S. in Art History from Kendall College of Art and Design with additional study at the l’Université Sorbonne, Paris and John Cabot University, Rome. While in Rome she gained curatorial experience working at the gallery PiazzadiaSpagna9.
