The 2020 Smoky Hill Art Exhibition was to have opened on April 24 as the anchor of the Spring Art Walk. The exhibition will now serve as our summer feature. In the interests of community safety & responsibility, the Summer Art Walk has been cancelled, but the "Smoky Hill" will be open to guests during our regular hours from June 22 through August 14, 2020.
The annual Smoky Hill Art Exhibition is a statewide juried fine art competitive open to any artist currently living in Kansas. Any original 2-D or 3-D works completed in the last 2 years (& not previously exhibited at the Hays Arts Center) are eligible.
Images here are from the 2019 Smoky Hill. Initial submission was through color images. $3,300 in total cash prizes were awarded by Mike Michaelis. The exhibition opened on April 26, 2019 as the anchor of the Spring Art Walk. It was a beautiful evening - and of course, all the art at the 30 different locations was amazing!
