The Packard Group National Exhibition will provide artists the opportunity to display their art at No. 7 Center in Vermillion, SD. This exhibition will be curated by Klaire A.

The reception will take place on Friday, June 19, 2020. At this time, we plan to have open gallery times, but we will wait to announce the dates. An online gallery will be available through

Any artist in the United States can submit artwork. There is a $20 entry fee, and a $10 return shipping fee. The total cost of entry is $30. Artwork without return shipping will not be returned. There is an optional artwork exchange with this exhibition.
