The 2017 edition of this annual exhibit presented in conjunction with the Parker Artist Guild, was juried from artist submissions sent in from across the state. The 46 painters and sculptors in this year’s show work in a variety of mediums including oil, watercolor, pastel and mixed media, as well as photography, clay, stone and bronze.

This is the first time the PACE Center has put out a call for an open show, and we’re pleased to see the strength of work--from realism to abstraction--that is happening in Colorado. The show was juried by PACE Center curator Rose Fredrick. Awards will be selected by Mark Nelson, nationally recognized artist who teaches and exhibits at venues across the United States. Nelson lives and works in Parker, CO and will attend the Awards Ceremony and discuss the award-winning works of art.
