The Summer Juried Show occurs annually at Abington Art Center. This exhibition celebrates art in all its forms, showcasing submissions that have been hand-picked by our juror from the community, Mashiul Chowhurdy. We welcome submissions in any medium for display in our galleries. The exhibition is currently on view until September 12th.
