Southern Exposure’s juried exhibition has become the premier showcase of contemporary artwork by promising local talent. Each year a different theme is selected to inspire and encourage a broad level of artistic expression. Proof, the theme for the 2011 Juried Exhibition, is intended to inspire and encourage a broad level of creative response. Artists are invited to submit work that responds to this theme in some way, shape or form. The theme and media are left open to the artists' interpretation in hopes that the work is conceptually and aesthetically diverse, drawing from as many insights and forms of creativity as possible.

Unlike many open calls for work that charge a submission fee, Southern Exposure's juried exhibition does not require artists to pay to enter their work. The exhibition is open to any artist living in Northern California north of King City and south of the Oregon border. Over the course of two days, over 500 Northern Californian artists enter their work, attesting to the extreme popularity of the show. The final pieces are selected by juror, Denise Markonish, who makes her decisions by blind process. For many of the artists selected, this is their first major exhibition and an important step in advancing their career.
