The 125 Show 2017 is a major annual art exhibit curated by Plano Art Association that is open to all artists living in a community within 125 miles of Plano. It is staged this year at the new ArtCentre of Plano.
Highly noted art judges have selected the top 65 works for the show from 235 entries from a 125 mile radius around Plano. The show has been an annual fixture in Plano for nearly two decades.
Major cash prizes totaling $4,000 will be awarded for artwork in each of three categories (2D, 3D, and Print/Photography) as well as a Best-of-Show award. A special Peoples’ Choice Award will be presented, along with Certificates of Merit to three finalists in each art genre category.
