28th Annual Midwest Seasons

Click the button above to complete the entry and submit images for the upcoming competitive exhibit!

The "28th Annual Midwest Seasons" exhibit is open to artists over the age of 18.
Original works should draw inspiration from Midwest seasonal impressions and activities: i.e.,
the excitement of summer sports, the fresh scents of spring awakenings, the warmth of a cup of
hot soup in the winter, or the crisp air in the autumn colors.

Interpretations of the season may be broad and entries
are not limited to representational works.

JUROR: Diana Lee Budde (Associate Professor of Art)
BS Degree in Art Education from Ball State University, 1989, MFA from the University Cincinnati, 1996.
Budde has exhibited paintings both regionally and nationally in juried competitions.
Painting "Tour of Duty" was chosen by Yolanda Lopez to represent the National Women's
Studies Association Women's Caucus for Art Exhibition in 2006.
