2020 Lakeside Virtual Art Show

The 64th Annual Lakeside Art Show is a non-juried show that awards prizes for a variety of two-dimensional artwork created by artists of all ages. Though we cannot hold the show as usual in the lobby of Lakeside’s Hoover auditorium, it will carry on in a virtual format! Links to view the show will be made available at


Artists are asked to submit photographs of their work to be displayed online from June 23 to July 25. Award-winning artist, Robin Roberts, is this year’s judge. Cash prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd, 3rd place and Honorable Mention in Adult and Teen categories. Non-cash honors include the People’s Choice Award, the Laura J. Werden Lakeside Award and the Neil Glaser Watercolor Award.


There is a limit of 3 entries per artist with a registration fee of $10 per piece. People interested in purchasing artwork will be encouraged to reach out to artists directly and Lakeside will not take a commission.
