The Hoosier Art Salon will hold its historic 100th Annual Exhibition in 2024.  However, it starts becoming a reality this year as we prepare to accept entries for the 99th Annual Exhibition.  Be looking for additional announcements as we ramp up for our year-long centennial celebration of Indiana artists and their artwork.  We hope you can be a part of it! To give you what you need to do your best work for entering this year’s Annual Exhibition, a summary of entry information, rules and specifications is below.
