The Red Clay Survey is a major recurring regional competition sponsored by the Huntsville Museum of Art that “takes the pulse” of contemporary Southern art through a selection of work in all styles and media determined by jurors with strong curatorial credentials. The exhibition recognizes and encourages excellence, and provides a permanent record of the development of regional art through the publication of a comprehensive exhibition catalogue. Selected works will be displayed in 5 galleries in the Museum’s elegant facility, located in Big Spring International Park in Downtown Huntsville.

This recurring juried competition, presented every three years, presents over 100 outstanding works by artists from 11 Southern states representing a cross-section of the best in regional contemporary art in varied media.

Jurors: Peter J. Baldaia, Director of Curatorial Affairs and David J. Reyes, Curator of Exhibitions and Collections, Huntsville Museum of Art
