The Veterans Show

About the Exhibition

The Veterans Show is a biennial exhibition held in November showcasing artwork made by former servicemembers of the United States military. The inaugural Veterans Show exhibition was a great success, bringing in over 70 artists from the region and throughout the nation who submitted their artwork for display.

The next call for submissions will open in spring 2021 to veteran artists from across the region and nation. For additional information on the Veterans Show, please contact Sydney Dexter, Exhibitions Manager, here or by calling 301-698-0656 ext. 108.
