Anton Art Center - Exhibit Philosophy

Our mission is to enrich and inspire people of all ages through the arts. The Anton Art Center hosts open call exhibitions each year, including the prestigious Michigan Annual, a juried, all-media competition held for Michigan artists.

 

Local art associations such as the Lakeside Palette Club of St. Clair Shores (LPC), the Mount Clemens Art Association (MCAA), the Shelby Township Fine Art Society (STFAS), the Romeo Guild of Art (RGA), and the Warren Tri-County Fine Arts Association, Inc. (WTCFA), exhibit at the center as well. Exhibitions are held in three galleries: the Main Galleries and the adjoining Boll History Gallery (1st Floor) and the Petitpren Community Gallery (2nd Floor), each with a different focus. We also exhibit art outside the building, adjacent to the center, in the Richard & Jane Manoogian Art Park.

We welcome all media to our space, with advance notice required on all site-specific works (electrical, installation, new media, kinetic, or works larger than 50 inches in any direction). We do not accept work that has a strong, harmful, or offensive scent and/or fumes; toxic, radioactive, leaking, or wet components; or any otherwise damaging or hazardous materials deemed unsafe to handle and/or observe within arm's length for our staff and the public. Auditory work must have an accessible volume control. The Anton Art Center reserves the right to final interpretation to these rules at any time.
