The Alachua County Library District will hold its eighth annual summer art show in early August virtually this year.

The art show, which will be an online collection, is open for submissions from people 18 and older until July 29. There will be no selection or judgement process as it provides an opportunity for art to be publicly featured by the library. 

Only two art submissions are allowed from each contributor, and each submission must be accompanied by a completed entry form. Digital art, photography, paintings, 3D art and any other mediums of art are accepted. 

“The library’s adult art show is an opportunity to share your works with the community, and to discover other local artists, and to put your work out there for a larger audience,” Rachel Cook, the public relations and marketing manager at the Alachua County Library District, said.

The Summit County Library is throwing an art and photography contest for teenagers in July. Entries, one per teen, are accepted at any library branch from July 1-31. All works will be showcased at the north branch in Silverthorne the first two weeks of August, and the public can vote on their favorite pieces.

Each submission must include the teenager’s name, age and email as well as a short artist statement. Artwork that isn’t photography must include dimensions and materials used.

Photography entries also can be submitted via email to [email protected]. The piece in each category with the most votes will win a people’s choice award while first- and second-place winners in each category will be selected by a panel of Summit County artists.
