Call for Artists / 2021 exhibition series
Inspired by...a journey into the realm of artists
June 5th- July 3rd
Submission Deadline May 19th
We all have that novel, poem, song lyric or film that has touched us deeply. Maybe a person or place that has stirred us to create. Moved us to change our viewpoint, or that spoke the thoughts we ourselves could not quite put into words.
With Inspired by… we invite you to harness that response into art.
Then submit your work along with a short excerpt or description of its inspiration. This will be displayed along side of your artwork to assist the viewer in appreciating the depth of your expression.

“How do you know, when you think blue — when you say blue — that you are talking about the same blue as anyone else?
You cannot get a grip on blue.
Blue is the sky, the sea, a god’s eye, a devil’s tail, a birth, a strangulation, a virgin’s cloak, a monkey’s ass. It’s a butterfly, a bird, a spicy joke, the saddest song, the brightest day.
Blue is sly, slick, it slides into the room sideways, a slippery trickster.
This is a story about the color blue, and like blue, there’s nothing true about it. Blue is beauty, not truth. ‘True blue’ is a ruse, a rhyme; it’s there, then it’s not. Blue is a deeply sneaky color.”
― Christopher Moore, Sacré Bleu: A Comedy d'Art
Our most popular show of 2020 is back!
Four Seasons is an invitation to artists to express the passage of time or their interpretations of the seasons themselves.
To celebrate the natural world, investigate our moods, the exhilaration of spring, the
contentment of summer, the urgency of fall and surrender to winter.
Submission Deadline September 8th

Smalls 12x12 or smaller
Great works come in small packages. Salvador Dali’s “Persistence of Memory”, arguably his most famous painting, is only 9” X 13”. William Blake’s “The Ghost of a Flea” is 8” x 6”. The Faberge Eggs range in size from 3 to 5 inches. Boundaries are meaningless.
Just in time for holiday gift giving we are centering this show around small works of art. The only requirement is size. All submitted work must be 12x12 or smaller. So let your imaginations run wild!
