Energen Art Show
Energen has sponsored its annual Art Competition at its Birmingham headquarters for 17 years, displaying about 200 paintings by a wide range of Alabama artists. The exhibition is held each spring. The winning artwork is purchased by Energen and becomes part of “The Wonders of Alabama Art" Collection, displayed year-round at Energen Plaza, the company’s headquarters in Birmingham.
Purchase awards include a $7,500 Grand Prize, and five $3,000 awards in the categories of landscape, representational, non-representational, wildlife and employee choice. The Representational category is NEW to the 2016 competition.
Since it began, the art competition has grown over 10-fold. The first year, Energen received only 29 entries. In past years, Energen’s art committee has had over 400 entries, with about half to appear in the two-week exhibition. Each year, a portion of the proceeds goes to local nonprofit organizations.
The 2016 Energen Art Competition and show will run from March 7 to 18, 2016. Call for Entries are now online and will be mailed to artists in our database beginning late November. Those interested in being added to the Call for Entries mailing list can send address and contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org
