OUR EXHIBITION

The MVIS Annual Juried Art Show has become one of the finest group exhibits in the Midwest. Featuring representational art by Impressionists and our fellow Realists, it is our organizations largest and most competitive event. Each year, this national event changes cities across the region offering our members opportunities to exhibit their work in communities they may not otherwise. Artists from across the country are welcome to join our organization and enter their work for a chance to exhibit, win awards and cash prizes. We encourage artists to enter their best work. To maintain quality shows, only qualified jurors are chosen from a variety of art professions; professional artists, university art professors, art museum curator's, art gallery owners, etc. ​​Venues are decided by space, location, and amount of exposure to art collectors.

PROSPECTUS WILL BE POSTED SOON!!!
