HoCo Open is an annual, non-juried exhibit showcasing local artists. Presented in a salon-style format, this crowd-pleasing show is open to artists of all skill levels who live, work, or study in Howard County.
Artists aged 18 years and older who live, work, or study in Howard County were invited to submit one piece of ready-to-install original artwork completed in the last two years for HoCo Open 2022, with submissions limited to the first 100 received. The salon-style exhibit is expected to feature art in a variety of styles and media, including watercolor, oil painting, sculpture, collage, drawing, photography, ceramics, and more.
