CUAC offers an annual juried exhibition called Utah Ties for artists who are from or/are currently living in Utah, or who have spent time in Utah either professionally or as students. Each year, there are awards totaling $1,000 given to juror’s selections in the show.

The purpose of Utah Ties is to help Utah artists gain exposure both locally and nationally by inviting highly-respected arts professionals from around the country to serve as our jurors.

The 2017 juror will be Mary Leigh Cherry of Cherry and Martin, Los Angeles


*The application fee covers both our costs in getting the Juror to come to Salt Lake City and the prize money for the show.  CUAC is a non-profit venue that supports artists. Any extra money will go towards supporting our exhibition programming.

*Shipping is responsibility of the artist.
