Packard Group National Exhibition 2023

The Packard Group National Exhibition provides artists with the opportunity to display their work at No. 7 Center Gallery in Vermillion, South Dakota. All artists from the United States are invited to submit up to three photos of their artwork cropped as squares. This exhibition will be juried by Miss Art World South Dakota Klaire A. Lockheart. Accepted artwork will be professionally printed as 8×8” squares and wheat-pasted to the exterior of No. 7 Center Gallery, and the images will be included in an online exhibition hosted by The opening reception will occur on Final Friday, August 25th, 2023 at No. 7 Center Gallery, 7 Center St., Vermillion, SD. The outdoor exhibition will be on display from August 25th through September 22nd, 2023. There is no entry fee to submit artwork, but artists will pay a $25 printing fee for each accepted image. No physical artwork will be shipped to the gallery. (Due to the ephemeral nature of wheat-pasting installation, the prints are exposed to the elements and public.
