The 53rd Founders Juried Awards Exhibition is an art exhibition open to 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional artwork by artists residing in the United States.

For artists from outside Florida, Founders exhibitions provide the opportunity to demonstrate success, compete for cash prizes totaling $3,500 and exhibit their art in Naples, Florida.

Touchable Art Exhibition

When:  October 4th-30th, 2019
Where:  The Naples Art Association, 585 Park Street in Naples

Art is generally considered to be a visual experience, but our appreciation of art does not need to come purely from sight. Touching is a basic instinct and a way to experience objects, gather information and build awareness. The Touchable Art exhibition will feature artwork by sighted, visually impaired and blind artists. Shaking off the traditional gallery-goer behavior, visitors are encouraged to use their sense of touch to explore the exhibition.

Your Choice 2019

When:  August 19th – September 25th, 2019

Your Choice is the Naples Art Association’s annual non-juried exhibition. It provides an opportunity for local artists to present their artwork to a large audience with no jury process requirement. The exhibition is called “Your Choice” because the artists and spectators make the choices. Artists decide which artwork they will exhibit while gallery viewers attending the reception decide who will receive the awards.
