The art show highlights the work of local professionals, amateurs, and aspiring artists in four divisions: professional, amateur, senior, and youth.

The artwork was judged by Ken Shipley and Melody Shipley.

Traditionally, the youth division involves high school art teachers submitting work for their students. However, since school was not in session when the artwork was due, youth submissions were strictly online this year.
