2nd Annual Impressions of Home Art Show and Auction: Call for Artists

ART EXHIBITION:                                 

Impressions of Home

Call for Artist Submissions

We are currently seeking art submissions for an upcoming exhibition entitled “Impressions of Home”. We envision an exhibition to activate reflection, questioning, understanding and even action by highlighting the various interpretations of being with or without a “home”.

Our purpose is to scrutinize the images and perceptions we each carry about homelessness and create an understanding that we all share the same fears, doubts, joys and basic needs. We are all vulnerable to homelessness.

The exhibition will be the focal point of our major fundraising event which entails a silent auction of all accepted submissions.

ARTWORK:
Any 2D art form including painting, drawing, printmaking, photography, mixed media.

TO APPLY:
1.  Email photos of your artwork to the Development Team at stanner@csoinc.org
     Make sure to include in the subject line: “Impressions of Home 2017 Art Submission”

  1. Include an artist statement that describes how your artwork connects with our theme
    “Impressions of Home” (max. 250 words). This will be displayed with your artwork.

EXHIBITION DATE:  June 5, 2017 at the Log Cabin, Holyoke, MA

ENTRY DEADLINE: May 19 , 2017

NOTIFICATION: May 26, 2017
All art will be reviewed for appropriateness for the show and the audience. By submitting artwork the artist agrees to allow Friends of the Homeless to sell their artwork at the silent auction. All proceeds support Friends of the Homeless. Artists will be
