Each year, the Northwest Louisiana Juried Artists Roster will select a jury of out-of-town judges that will review the Directory for the entries of the new artists who have submitted during the previous year, and this jury will determine who will be added to the Juried Artist Roster.


  1. Promotion on the Shreveport Regional Arts Council Directory WEBSITE. NWLAArtist.org
  2. Nationally Published/Renowned Critics have reviewed your work and determined that you are a Career Professional Artist.

  3. In future “CALLS FOR COMMISSIONS,” the jury does not review your work samples to determine that you are “Professional” – instead, they limit their review to your proposal and to the way in which your work samples convey your ability to execute your ideas.

  4. You are encouraged to have a solo exhibition at either ARTSPACE (coolspace) or the Central ARTSTATION.  The staff will assist you in making a proposal for an Exhibition.  The Exhibition plan is reviewed and approved by a team of ARTSPACE Jurors.  You are supported with an Opening Reception complete with Direct Mail and E-mail Invitations, and a four-week exhibition.

  5. You are welcomed at the monthly meeting of your peer ROSTER ARTISTS wherein there are networking opportunities, “first-hand” information about upcoming paid Artists’ opportunities, and the responsibility to recommend Arts Policies for the Shreveport Regional Arts Council and City of Shreveport.

  6. You are welcomed to all Arts Programming at ARTSPACE and the Central ARTSTATION with no admission fees; this includes no fees for openings, performances, or demonstrations .  The two exceptions to this privilege are workshops with a designated/limited number of participants (Roster Artists will receive a 20% discount)and fundraising events at ARTSPACE and/or Christmas in the Sky – we appreciate your support!
