About the Show
The Will's Creek Competition & Exhibition of Fine Art is one of the signature events of the Allegany Arts Council, celebrating contemporary art in a variety of mediums.
Now, more than 20 years since its inception, the show continues to stretch the boundaries of contemporary art that reflect the issues that shape our world.
Today, these tumultuous times have clearly dictated the many changes, transformations, and transitions we find ourselves, our society, and the world going through.
To this end, 2022’s Will’s Creek Competition and Exhibition of Fine Art invited artists to submit their artwork related to the theme: Metamorphosis.
The exhibition will run in the Saville Gallery from September 3-24, 2022!
The call for entry is now closed. We received nearly 450 entries in this year's competition, the most in our 23 years! Thank you to all of the artists who supported this competition.
More than $4000 in prize money is awarded to the winning artists each year. In 2021, prizes were awarded in the following categories:
Best of Show $1500
First Place $1000
Second Place $750
Third Place $500
Honorable Mention $250
People's Choice $100
