The Joe Center for the Arts is a community based non-profit art center. Our mission is to educate, exhibit, partner and inspire through the Arts. This page is where we will list our current and upcoming Calls for Entry, along with any information we have.
The Forgotten Coast, situated on the Gulf of Mexico, with its sandy dunes, salt marshes, pine flatwoods and freshwater swamps, offers a diverse habitat for all manner of fish and birds. It is a paradise to both fishermen and birders. The Joe is seeking artwork that captures the vibrant spirit, the beauty, the diversity and the detail of our finned and feathered friends. All media is welcome, including 2-Dimensional, 3-Dimensional, photography, etc.
