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, and seeks artists who push the limits, and seek innovation in their artistry. Through the years, the competition has taken place with and without a theme - in 2021, no theme has been identified.
The exhibition will run in the Saville Gallery from September 4-October 2, 2021, and will also be featured in this digital gallery. A Public Opening and Awards Presentation with our 2021 juror, Laura Roulet, will be held Saturday, September 11, 2021, from 6-8PM, and is free and open to the public.
Submissions are now being accepted into the 22nd annual competition. To view the call, eligibility requirements and helpful information, click below. The deadline to enter is July 15, 2021.

First Place $1000
Second Place $750
