HoCo Open, the Arts Council's immensely popular non-juried exhibit, is now an annual event! Artists (aged 18 years and older) who live, work, or study in Howard County are invited to bring one piece of ready-to-hang original artwork completed in the past two years to the drop-off on January 4 from 4:30–6:30pm. Artwork will be accepted for the exhibit on a first-come, first-serve basis, one piece per artist, until the gallery is full. HoCo Open entry forms are available in the Artist Opportunities section at hocoarts.org.
HoCo Open 2018 will be on display from January 12 – February 23, 2018. A free reception on January 19 (snow date: January 26) will include the presentation of the new $500 Covington Emerging Artist Award, to be presented by Ellicott City’s HorseSpirit Arts Gallery to an emerging artist participating in the exhibit.
