All 2-dimensional artwork framed up to 36 inches in the long dimension, including but not limited to painting, photography, and mixed media is eligible. The exhibit will be displayed from May 24 – June 24, 2023 in the Berkeley Art Works, 116 North Queen Street in Martinsburg, WV.
There is no entry fee. Accepted artists will be asked to make a donation to support the gallery at the time work is delivered.

The Berkeley Art Works, a project of the Berkeley Arts Council, is the realization of the long-held dream of the arts community in Martinsburg and Berkeley County West Virginia: to have a community-based arts facility that supports local and regional artists, brings quality arts experiences for the members of the public, and provides a wide range of arts learning experiences for local residents, artists, and artisans.
