Juried Art Shows
The first juried show was held at the Courthouse Annex in Ft. Walton Beach in September 2011. 84 local artists participated with a variety of media. All artists agreed to leave artwork for one year and many pieces were permanently donated.
Since then OPA has sponsored many juried art shows in public places for the community to enjoy, and holds an annual juried show at the Okaloosa County Administrative Building in Shalimar. Artists are awarded prizes; however, the goal is to continue to bring art to the community.
