Venue-Based Exhibitions

COPYRIGHT STATEMENT: All images are the property of the artists and protected by copyright. No image can be used without the written permission of the artist.

ISEA offers venue-based exhibitions to provide artists the opportunity to compete for the honor of inclusion in an exhibition in a recognized gallery or museum.


The Annual International Open Juried Exhibition, INNOVATIONS, is ISEA's premier artist opportunity with approximately  $14,000 USD in cash and material awards. Intake begins April 1st to 30th each year.

The exhibition opens just prior to the ISEA Annual Symposium each year and is usually hosted in a gallery in the same regional or municipal area as the venue for the symposium. Award winners’ work will also be shown on our home page with a link to all accepted work displayed on our exhibition site. For members of ISEA, inclusion in these exhibitions also counts toward Signature, Nautilus Fellow, and Master Fellow status in the society.

A well-known artist is engaged to judge entries into this exhibition. The registration fee is $55 USD for non-members and $30 USD for members.

Make sure you understand the Terms and Conditions:

The exhibition will be hung in the Central Park Place in Grand Haven, MI and can be viewed September 7 to October 31, 2024.  Awards will be announced at the Awards Reception September 18, 2024. To view a list of invited artists for 2024 click here.
