The LaGrange Southeast Regional traces its roots to the LaGrange National Competition which began in 1964 when a competitive show known as the Gardens Art Festival was organized and sponsored by the Chattahoochee Valley Art Association, LaGrange College and Callaway Gardens. In 1974, the competition was moved to LaGrange, took the name LaGrange National, and was expanded from a regional to a national show. In 1984, the competition expanded again and displayed in two locations, with the Chattahoochee Valley Art Association Museum and the Lamar Dodd Art Center, of LaGrange College.
Over the years, the LaGrange National earned an excellent reputation numerous distinguished jurors including Lloyed Goodrich, Richard Lahey, Carl Holty, Joseph Rishel, Larry Poons, Jane Livingston, Cynthia McCabe, Linda Cathcart, Ted Potter, Roy Slade, Henry Hopkins, Patterson Sims, Peter Mirin, Siri Engberg, Benny Andrews, Robert Lyon, Jane Jackson, Eleanor Heartney, J. Richard Gruber, Robert E. Steele, Annette Cone-Skelton and Deanna Sirlin. This year, David Houston joins the list of these respected jurors who have helped bring additional prestige to the museums’ juried exhibitions.
The LaGrange Southeast Regional provides the citizens of West Georgia and East Alabama access to current artistic practice; offers artists exhibition opportunities and purchase possibilities; and affords the LaGrange Art Museum and the Lamar Dodd Art Center a means for the development of significant collections of contemporary American art. Both organizations have been extremely fortunate to have generous support from the Callaway Foundation of LaGrange who has provided purchase award funds to further their growing collections. Exhibition funding also provided by the Georgia Council for the Arts.
The categories include: Drawings, Paintings, Prints, Sculpture, Photography, Ceramics & Mixed Media. You must indicate which category your submission falls under for each individual entry. You may enter more than one category, just be sure to include the category you have selected along with each submission’s detail requirements. Select the category for your work that you think is appropriate.
The venues for the exhibition are the LaGrange Art Museum, (Paintings, Prints, and Drawings) and the Lamar Dodd Art Center of LaGrange College, (Photography, Ceramics, Sculpture, and Mixed Media).
