About the Bryn Du Art Show
The Bryn Du Art Show is an annual juried exhibition held at the beautiful Bryn Du Mansion. Just east of Columbus, this historic Federal style mansion has dominated the landscape of the 52-acre estate in the charming Village of Granville, Ohio since 1905. This year’s 19th Annual Art Show will be held from March 2-25, 2023 featuring current works of visual art. A $1000 prize will be awarded for Best in Show, and 2 additional excellence awards of $500 each will be awarded to two additional artists. Free and open to the public, the Art Show is sponsored and supported by the Bryn Du Commission, the Village of Granville, the Ohio Arts Council, the Granville Arts Commission, River Tree Wealth Management – Northwestern Mutual, GermainCars.com, Kinetic by Windstream, the Hinderer Motor Company, and Ohio Magazine, among others.

COVID-Related Event Information
The Bryn Du Art Show will abide by all local, state and national guidelines regarding the holding of events in the time of the coronavirus pandemic. The Show recognizes that there is no way to anticipate whether or not the 19th Annual Bryn Du Art Show will be able to be held in a traditional format, although that is what is currently planned for. If deemed necessary by the staff and Board of Directors, Bryn Du reserves the right to make the show a hybrid in-person/virtual event. A hybrid art show will physically display artworks in the Mansion but could be limited in number of individuals allowed to enter the show at a time and may reduce the number of art show related events held in-person. Regardless of the type of show that is held, all artists submitting work to be considered for the show will agree to the decisions made and adjust accordingly.
