Key Ingredient Juried Exhibit 2021

A call for for Submission of Works:

The Union on Odessa invites you to enter the

Key Ingredient Juried Exhibition.

This exhibit will be on display from April 5th, 2021 through May 16th, 2021 at The Union on Odessa in Tallapoosa, GA. This show will showcase artwork surrounding a “Key Ingredient” theme.

The inaugural exhibit was held a few years ago and featured “Food” as they key ingredient. All works in that show were at least loosely based on food. There were paintings, drawings and photographs of things like eggs, farm animals, bowls of food, and a child with a messy, food-covered face.

Since we have a newly refurbished space, we have chosen “Redone” as the Key Ingredient for this exhibit. All works must have something to do with that key ingredient theme.

The Opening Reception will be April 5th ay 7PM. All attendees must wear masks and observe social distancing. The Union is a small venue and will allow in only a small number of visitors at a time. Please be patient and understanding if you plan to attend. Show hours will be limited, but appointments for viewing can be made by contacting the Union staff.


All submissions are to be entered via photo in jpg format not to exceed 2MB. Each jpg file should be named in the following format:

Entry fee for the show is $20. Artists may enter up to 3 pieces for one entry fee. Paying the entry fee does not guarantee an artist’s work or works being accepting into the show. Please include in a description of the work and how or why it fits the “Redone” theme in your email. The interpretation of how your work fits the subject will be between you and the show juror. The Show Juror’s decision for acceptance and for prizes is final. No entry fees will be returned.

Recognitions will be made for:

  • Best of show

“Best of…” winners will be determined by the Juror. Audience Favorite will be determined by visitor’s votes. Union Favorite will be chosen by members of The Union on Odessa LLC. The Union is also seeking local businesses to choose their favorites and provide incentives/rewards.
