Call to Artists: HoCo Open 2020

HoCo Open, the Howard County Arts Council's immensely popular non-juried exhibit showcasing local artistic talent, is open to artists (aged 18 years and older) who live, work, or study in Howard County. Eligible artists are invited to bring one piece of ready-to-hang original artwork completed in the past two years to the Howard County Center for the Arts on January 3 between 4:30 and 6:30pm (snow date: January 6). Artwork will be accepted for the exhibit on a first-come, first-serve basis, one piece per artist, until the gallery is full.

HoCo Open 2020 will be on display from January 10 – February 21, 2020, with a reception on January 17 from 6-8pm. A highlight of the reception will be the presentation of the $500 Covington Emerging Artist Award to a HoCo Open participating artist. The Covington Award was established by HorseSpirit Arts Gallery owner Robin Holliday to recognize and support an emerging artist at a pivotal time in their career.
