Juried High School Art Exhibition

Every two years, Sweet Briar College invites young women artists to apply for our biennial Juried High School Exhibition. Students are eligible to apply with up to two artworks in any form and/or mediums of visual art.

The exhibition will take place on the Sweet Briar College campus, along with a public reception and awards ceremony. A panel of Sweet Briar faculty, staff and students will jury the exhibition and award the scholarship prizes.

The scholarship award is contingent on acceptance to Sweet Briar College and a commitment to attend.

An application portal will open in September 2024 for the 2025 awards. Check back for more details.

Questions can be directed to Shawn O’Connor, Assistant Professor of Studio Art, at soconnor@sbc.edu
