Entries for the Massillon Museum’s “Stark County Artists Exhibition” are due Monday, Aug. 15. The exhibition will open Dec. 1 with a reception from 5:30-8 p.m. The exhibition will continue through Jan. 15.

The annual exhibition is open to present and former Stark County residents and to those currently working in Stark County age 18 and older. Each artist may submit up to three digital images of artwork completed within the past two years. Artwork in any medium will be considered.

This year’s jurors will be Amber N. Ford, photographer and artist; Dave Szalay, artist and professor of graphic design at University of Akron; and Janice Lessman-Moss, artist and head of textiles at Kent State University. They will select artwork to be included in the exhibition and the prize winners: Best in Show, $300; second place, $200; and third place, $100. Visitors throughout the exhibition will vote for the People’s Choice Award of $100.
