The Westman Juried Art Show is into its 40th year.

The Arts West Council runs the show and they have placed a call for artists to submit pieces of art to be critiqued by a pair of judges.

Chris Moore is with the council and says they usually get about 100 pieces of art entered for the judging. “Amateur artists from the Westman region enter their art and they receive some professional advice from the jurors. This gives the amateur artists a chance to connect with professional artists while meeting with artists from across the region.”

The Juried Art Show will be held in Kenton on April 27th and will be hosted by the Hamiota Art Club and the Arts West Council.

From that opening exhibit, judges will select 20 works for the Travelling Gallery which will tour to about 20 Westman communities starting in May.
