Open Call - 2020 VISION

 

 

We are now accepting submissions for our spring art exhibition:

 

DEADLINE: April 30, 2020 

 

We invite Greater Portland artists to submit work for exhibition consideration in our 6th juried show, 2020 Vision: Past, Present, and Future,” which will hang for 6 months between May 2020 and October 2020. Unless you are exhibiting in our current show, "All the Great Trees," at 84 Free Street, all artists are invited to submit work (up to three pieces) for consideration via high resolution jpeg to: submissions@creativeportland.com.

Your response can be a personal interpretation of a moment in Maine’s history. How are we changing, where have we come from, what have we learned, what have we accomplished? Where do we want to go?

 

We are seeking artwork in a large scale format, with dimensions at least 24” X 30”. Your work should have a strong focus on Maine and may elucidate untold narratives, visions of the future, issues you may be tackling in your own practice and/or complex histories. Our volunteer curatorial team will review your work and notify you in early May. All submissions due Thursday, April 30. If your work is chosen and sold in our gallery, we ask for (a voluntary) 20% donation of your sale.
