Every year, Scarborough Arts produces its Annual Juried Exhibition, a showcase of visual and media art created and curated in response to a themed call. Pieces, which can be in any medium, are selected for exhibition based upon a combination of artistic quality, technical execution, conceptual strength, originality, and impact. The jury, made up of gallery and community arts professionals, changes each year.

From 2015 to 2017, the BIG ART BOOK, a print and online anthology of visual arts and literature, was published as a companion to the Annual Juried Exhibition.
