NHAA’s longevity and strong reputation is a result of our talented artists and their high quality work. Our association provides many opportunities for artists to exhibit and sell their artwork. To maintain those standards we require artists to be juried into the association.
Currently NHAA has 2 jurying opportunities during the year – Spring and Fall. Specific dates and locations are posted as soon as they are finalized,

The jurying process takes a day. Prospective members are required to drop-off four original works of art, in the same medium, which reflect the artist’s voice and are representative of their body of work. NHAA will have multiple jurors present with backgrounds in different mediums to review and judge the work. After the jurying takes place, artists return to pick up their art.
Criteria for Acceptance
When reviewing the submissions jurors look for the following: Maturity of artistic concept, Mastery of the medium, Composition, Consistency of Artistic Concept and Presentation. For additional details on Criteria for Acceptance, click here,
