Every year, Tamarack: The Best of West Virginia and the Tamarack Foundation for the Arts celebrate West Virginia artists and artisans by showcasing their creativity and talent in this juried competition. The Best of West Virginia show is the only exhibition hosted by the David L. Dickirson Fine Arts Gallery, located at Tamarack in Beckley, West Virginia, that may be entered by any artist or artisan who is a state resident. The exhibition opens annually on West Virginia Day weekend. Participants in the exhibition compete for four monetary awards.
The prospectus for this competition is typically distributed in February and entries are generally due in April. To be notified when the artwork submission process opens, email the David L. Dickirson Fine Arts Gallery at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The 2018 show is on view through August 5, 2018. Visit the David L. Dickirson Fine Arts Gallery inside Tamarack: The Best of WV to cast your vote for the People’s Choice Award.
