The Uncommon Merits and Awards Exhibition

Open Call for New England Artists …


We all know it is standard to win prizes for anything from best in show to commendation for valor on the battlefield. But what about the many non-traditional milestones that may go unrecognized? Whether they be personal, community oriented, political, or cosmic, we ask that your approach to the merits and awards theme be humorous and/or light hearted.

Artists working in 2-D and 3-D imagery residing in New England are invited to participate. All entries will be considered as long as they relate to the theme.

This will be a regional juried show, curated by Amy Johnquest and Jill St. Coeur. Exhibition dates are Sept. 6 through Oct. 24 2018. With an opening reception on Sept. 6 from 5:30 – 7:30 at the Holyoke Community College, Taber Art Gallery, Holyoke, Mass

Submission deadline has been extended to July 1st
