Maine Open Juried Art Show
In 1989 the Waterville Area Art Society initiated an annual competition and exhibition known as The Maine Open Juried Art Show. The show is a showcase for the talents of Maine artists and a popular event for the viewing public.
The purpose of this show is to promote art awareness, to provide an art competition and a venue for Maine artists to exhibit their work in Central Maine. The Waterville Public Library successfully hosted the first twelve shows. In 2002, the Maine Open-Juried Art Show move to the Winslow Public Library, providing more exhibition space for the growing number of participating artists.
