Submit a digital image along with information below to enter. There is no entry fee for this judged exhibit, so start creating! We'd love to have your piece hanging on the newly installed gallery wall in the Stow Community Center.

First place winner receives a cash prize. A “fan favorite” will be determined by those attending opening night through secret ballot, and also be awarded a prize.

The exhibit will be open for public viewing throughout the month, as well as each Saturday.
