Harrison County Arts invites artists working in the Ohio River Valley to submit their work for consideration in our Annual Regional Juried Exhibition, taking place September 13–November 9, 2024, in our restored historic gallery in downtown Corydon, Indiana.

We encourage emerging and established artists working across all mediums to submit their work for consideration.

The open-ended intent of this exhibition is purposeful: We invite all artists to submit their work so we can celebrate and support the vibrant artistic community in our area. Please join us in exploring the unique perspectives and visions of artists in this region.
