The Eclipse Mill Gallery in North Adams, Massachusetts is inviting professional artists in any media to submit to its spring juried exhibition titled inDIVISIBLE. The 2016 political campaign season was incredibly stressful and contentious. It divided families, distanced friends, and challenged our perceptions of the country at large. The subsequent election of Donald J. Trump as the nation’s 45th President has deepened the divide among citizens and residents of the country. This exhibition, inDIVISIBLE, will explore themes of democracy and the American electoral system. We are looking for works that are reflective of your thoughts, experiences, and reactions to the political events of the past ten months and the impact these events have had on you personally, professionally, socially, philosophically, and/or culturally.
Deadline: February 3, 2017
Entry Fee: $30 for 3 entries / $5 for each entry thereafter
The Cape Cod Museum of Art in Dennis, MA is currently accepting entries for Freedom of Expression: A National Juried Exhibition. 2D and 3D work in all media, and videos. All work must be original and created in the last 3 years. This exhibition will be held at the Cape Cod Museum of Art in Dennis, in conjunction with ArtsWeek Boston, and ArtSpring Cape Cod, April 27 – May 7, 2017. Its theme is drawn from the inspiration of Tom Stoppard’s play, “Every Good Boy Deserves Favor,’ that critiques the Soviet Union’s policy of declaring political dissent as a form of mental illness that is cause for loss of freedom and commitment to an institution. This broad theme assumes that free expression can be a doorway to creativity, and that it can take many forms, literally and figuratively. Great art can move us by communicating through explicit messages, beautiful forms, textures, and colors, through abstract concepts, or through any combination of these attributes. But the greatest challenge with any response to a theme is that the individual piece must exist as a work of art beyond any message or agenda.
Deadline: February 5, 2017
Entry Fee: $35
