Venue-Based Exhibitions

ISEA offers venue-based exhibitions to provide artists the opportunity to compete for the honor of inclusion in an exhibition in a recognized gallery or museum.

Annual International Open Juried Exhibition

The Annual International Open Juried Exhibition is ISEA's premier artist opportunity with approximately  $10,000 USD in awards. 

The exhibition opens just prior to the ISEA Annual Symposium each year and is hosted in a gallery in the same regional or municipal area as the venue for the symposium. Award winners’ work will also be shown on our home page with a link to all accepted work displayed on our SmugMug site. For members of ISEA, inclusion in these exhibitions also counts toward Signature and Nautilus status in the society.

A well-known artist is engaged to judge entries into this exhibition. The registration fee is $55 USD for non-members and $30 USD for members.

Make sure you understand the Terms and Conditions:
