With a wide variety of mediums accepted, including oil, acrylic, watercolor painting, charcoal, ink, pastels, colored pencil, printmaking, mixed media, digital art, photography, pottery, sculpture, crafts, and fiber arts, there is something for every artist to showcase. We encourage all artists to submit their work, regardless of their skill level. SOJE also offers competitive and non-competitive categories for all artists.

We can’t wait to see the variety of mediums and talent that will be showcased this year.”
