WILLIAMSBURG — The Williamsburg Contemporary Art Center (WCAC) is resuming its annual Regional Juried Show for the first time since the pandemic began, opening Sept. 28 and running through Nov. 11.

“This is an exceptional show and attracts artists from across the region,” said Karen Schwartz, program co-chair. “All artwork in the show has been juried in, and it represents the best work of the selected artists. We are delighted to be able to host it again after such a long hiatus.”

The show is not limited to WCAC members. The College of William & Mary’s Chancellor Professor Emeritus of Art History, Miles Chappell, is judging. Cash awards for the show winners will be announced at a reception for WCAC members and participating artists.

“Professor Chappell has chosen the work of 85 artists for the exhibit. It includes two- and three-dimensional artwork in all styles and mediums from professional as well as new artists. There is no limit to the creativity represented,” said Apryl Altman, program co-chair. “We are really excited about this show.”

The regional show coincides with the Artisan Corner, featuring jewelry, pottery, fiber art, and other 3-D works.

WCAC, located in the blue building at 110 Westover Ave., is open from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., Wednesday through Saturday. Most of the artwork will be for sale.
