The Masur Museum of Art’s Annual Juried Competition showcases contemporary artists throughout the United States of America working in any medium. First started in 1964, the Annual Juried Competition is the Masur Museum’s longest-running tradition and one of its best-reviewed exhibitions each year. Annually, 700-1000 recent artworks are submitted by artists all over the nation, in all styles and media. The Masur Museum is proud to offer cash awards totaling $3,200.

This year's guest juror, Kerry Inman, is the owner and director of Inman Gallery in Houston, Texas. Founded in 1990, the gallery has hosted over 200 exhibitions in its 33-year history. The gallery represents emerging and established artists with a connection to Texas, as well as the estate of Texas modernist Dorothy Antoinette (Toni) LaSelle. Kerry also serves on the board of the Contemporary Arts Museum, Houston.

The deadline for online submissions will be December 14, 2023 at 11:59p.m. and artists will be notified of the juror's selections on January 11, 2024. The exhibition will be placed on display for viewing at the Masur Museum of Art from February 22 through May 4, 2024. Visit for more information and to enter.
