Art Council Biennial Exhibits

The Art Council of Southwest Florida organizes two major exhibits for the artists who are members of the Council's affiliate arts organizations.

Winner's Circle Show

During odd-numbered years, the Art Council of Southwest Florida holds the Winner's Circle Show.  This is an especially exciting show because every work of art exhibited has won a top prize in one of the exhibits of the Council's member organizations during the previous two-year period.  Thus, the prize-winners of this show represent the best of the best artwork produced by the Art Council's member artists.

In 2023, the show was held at the Norris Center in Naples during normal business hours from June 3rd to July 28th with an opening reception from 5 to 7 on June 3rd.
