Along with the seasonal studio tours, juried shows are a good way to gauge the voices of Durham Region artists, what are they working on, what are they saying, what are they seeing and what are they showing?
The VAC’s 38th Annual Juried Show opens Oct. 14 and runs to Nov. 11, 2018. Sonya Jones, Curator of Collections at the The Robert McLaughlin Gallery, is this year’s juror.

This year’s prizes will reflect on the best works in the exhibition regardless of medium, subject matter or size. The award categories are as follows:
