2022 IX art show

Submit Your Art

To assist artists who may be interested in participating in IX Arts events/shows, here is an overview of the submission/acceptance process for IX Arts events. Since there are two parts to the IX show, there are two different submissions processes to consider.

Traditional Media Only

Main Show

The IX Main Show is juried, so all artists interested in exhibiting must submit their work to the jury during the specified time period. Normally, the jury submission period opens on November 1st and closes on November 30th, with the results of the judging being announced in mid-December. This, of course, is for the following year’s IX – submissions sent from November 1st – November 30th, 2022, will be juried to fill spaces in the October 2023 IX show.

Jurying details – including the identities of the jurors – are announced in advance both on the IX Arts website as well as our Facebook page and via our mailing list. If you are interested in submitting for a future show, please join the IX Arts mailing list to be sure not to miss any notifications and for full instructions, as the number of required pieces or required submissions details do periodically change. All submissions take place online, and there is no fee to submit your work for IX.

*Main Show submissions are closed for 2022.

Any Media Type

Evening Showcase

The IX Showcase is not juried. There is no submission or approval process – Showcase tables are sold on a first-come, first-served basis. Showcase tables go on sale in mid-January, and generally, sell out quickly. After tables are sold out we will take names for our waiting list, but if you want a Showcase table the best method is to get one while they are on sale.

We will announce the date and time that tables will go on sale on the IX Arts website, our Facebook page, and via our mailing list at least two weeks in advance of the actual on-sale date. Again, if you are interested in exhibiting in the Showcase, please sign up for our mailing list. Please contact us if you are interested in a Showcase table for 2022.
