Call For Entry

2020 Elected Members' juried Exhibition

IMportant update

Due to Covid-19 close downs, the 2020 Elected Members exhibition will now  be held online on the SCA website.  The Musee was not able to confirm that restrictions would be lifted in time for the exhibition to take place.  The SCA Exhibition committee had to make the hard decision to cancel the gallery show and hold it instead as an online display of our Elected members talents.  

We are making plans to return to the Musee de l’Hotel des Postes in the spring of 2021.

All the call information is below. Please read the Entry Terms & Conditions carefully before proceeding with your submission. If you have any questions please contact our  Exhibition coordinator, Karin Richter, at
