The Kent Arts Commission is seeking entries for an online exhibit via Kent Creates, a web platform for sharing art, culture, and creative endeavors. 

The most recent exhibit is open through September 30 and focuses on the theme of “Look Up.” The call for entries encourages artists and creative minds to gain inspiration from the skies and all things above. 

The “Look Up” exhibit is open to any creative endeavor – photographs, paintings, poems, recipes, short films, songs, or stories – anything creative minds can dream up. Work may be submitted through September 30. The Kent Arts Commission will select the top five pieces, which will receive $200 honorariums and featured status on the site. 

Kent Creates encourages Kent residents to be creative; it is a web platform for artists, musicians, writers, crafters, illustrators, dancers, filmmakers, hobbyists, and other creatives to share their work and meet people with similar interests. Creative work of all kinds may be shared on Kent Creates is free to use and anyone can sign up; there is no requirement to live in Kent. 


You can simply browse or, if you’d like to upload your own work to an open exhibit, create an account to get started. Uploaded art work will be reviewed and published weekly by Kent Arts Commission staff. After approval, your artwork will appear on the site. The Kent Arts Commission will vote on work entered for each exhibit after the closing date. The winners will receive awards and benefits as outlined in the specifics for each exhibit, and their work will appear in the featured carousel on the Kent Creates home page.
