About the Juried Art Show 


We invite you to submit your artwork to our 56th annual juried art show.  This is the cornerstone of the Pembroke Arts Festival, and typically every year hundreds of visitors come t Pembroke to view the amazing diversity of pieces on display.


This year we have an in-person exhibit, with submissions and jurying being conducted in the summer of 2024.  The Pembroke Arts Festival would like to thank our sponsors for many generous prizes!

Award - $100

Sponsored by:

Ed Quill

With other wives, Delores Quill joined with the directors in 1968 in the very first Arts Festival, assisting them in the preparations for the proposed three-day event. She helped line up volunteers to pass out programs and to man the raffle and donation bowls. She assisted in setting up the art exhibits in the two tents, labeling, and making sure the artists got their works returned. She helped in numerous other behind-the-scenes activities that made the first festival memorable and worth doing annually. She continued in these activities for several subsequent years.
