The Rice Gallery of Fine Art is now accepting submissions for our 6th Annual National Juried Show! The theme of this year’s show is SMALL WORKS (14 inches and under) and the Best of Show Prize is $1,500!

Small works are the building blocks of any great collection, and as any art lover knows, there’s always room for one more! Smaller paintings appeal to a unique cross section of art collectors from the budget conscious beginner to the seasoned connoisseur with limited wall space.

In our continued effort to appeal to our client’s varied tastes and sensibilities, we are seeking original painted small works of all subjects and painting styles for our upcoming annual juried show. Submissions must be original paintings and the painted surface must be sized no more than 14 inches at its longest dimension (example 11×14, 14×14, or smaller).

This show will be open to the public and all paintings selected will be exhibited and promoted for sale, both in person and online.

  • Artists may submit 1 to 5 images of their best original paintings sized 14 inches and under to be judged on an individual basis by our experienced panel of judges.
