Our Suncoast (FSWS) Exhibition Season begins in the Fall of each year and runs through the Spring. We hold several exhibitions each year at various locations throughout the region. We continue to return to ArtCenter Manatee in Bradenton in the early Winter/Spring of each year and arrange with other galleries to extend our reach throughout our artist member region. We have been fortunate to hold our Winter exhibition at the same time national organizations (i.e., American Watercolor Society and National Watercolor Society) hold their traveling shows at ArtCenter Manatee. We also have juried online exhibitions and held an online juried competition in Fall, 2023. 

All members are invited to submit one or two artworks online through a call for entry registration process. Fee for entry is $25 for one entry and $35 for two entries. Both entries will be reviewed by the judge/juror who will select the paintings and awards for that exhibition.

A Prospectus will be available for each Exhibition to address specifics for the gallery and any revisions that may have been made for that Exhibition. All entries must comply with our current prospectus which will be updated and made available for all members.
