Call for Entries

The following is a list of our current ‘Call for Entries.’

The Rehoboth Art League offers juried exhibitions and events throughout the year. Member artists have the opportunity to enter all of the juried exhibitions offered by the league (assuming their submissions  are compatible with the type of media and theme posted within the call).  Non-member artists are eligible to participate in some of our juried shows. These include: The Regional Juried Biennial Exhibition (next in 2020), the RAL Regional Juried Photography Exhibition (January 2019), as well as 2020  Solo and Group show proposals. 

The prospectus for any exhibition associated with a  ‘Call for Entry’ is linked from this page and from the exhibition’s web page from the time of the call until one month following the close of the exhibit.  Use this to reference information such as the dates and deadline for picking up  unsold works following the exhibition’s close.
