The Center for Contemporary Arts is excited to announce our 3rd Annual National Juried Art Competition Exhibition:

CCAN 2019


This competition is national as well as local in its reach. San Francisco-based watercolor artist, Gary Bukovnik has agreed to be our judge for this exciting competition.


Not only can we boast a nationally known artist as our judge, but we will be presenting cash prizes that range from $500 per category to $1500 for best of show. All prizes will be awarded at an opening reception on September 14, 2019.  We are very excited about bringing a competition of this caliber to the Center for Contemporary Arts and Abilene.  

Join us on September 14th for our Opening Events!
