The Big Show 2012
Submission dates: June 27, 2012, 12-8 PM 
& June 28, 2012 10 AM - 5PM 

Marco Antonini, Gallery Director
Brooklyn, NY

The Big Show is Lawndale Art Center's annual open-call, juried exhibition. It has been an important venue through which emerging and under-represented Houston area artists gain exposure since the show's conception in 1984. The Big Show was formerly the East End Show, sponsored by the East End Progress Association, at Lawndale's original location.

Each year Lawndale Art Center invites a guest juror to select from work submitted by artists living within 100 miles of Houston. Artists are invited to bring up to three works of art, not previously shown in Houston, to Lawndale Art Center where the work is juried on-site for a chance to be included in the show and a shot at one of three cash prizes.

Important dates:
Submission dates (work must be delivered to Lawndale):
June 27, 2012, 12-8 PM & June 28, 2012 10 AM - 5PM

Pick up dates (for work not selected for the exhibition): 
July 2 & 3, 2012, 10 AM - 5 PM

Exhibition on view July 13 - August 11, 2012
Opening Reception, Friday, July 13, 2012, 6:30 - 8:30 PM
