It’s time to think big! For a competitive juried exhibition, we call for wall-hung artworks that are at least 3 feet in one direction (but no larger than 8 feet). All themes and media are welcome, including but not limited to painting, photography, digital, and fine craft.
We are going big in only two dimensions: artwork may extend no further than 8 inches from the wall. (Artists will be contacted after submitting if there are concerns about fitting the artwork through our doors.)
Artworks must be able to be securely mounted to the wall by nails, screws, picture hooks, magnets, or grommets (no binder clips). Stretched or panel paintings should not be wired, and should hang on D-rings. Any unframed works on paper or fiber pieces must be secured at top and bottom.
Nancy Burns, Stoddard Associate Curator of Prints, Drawings and Photographs at Worcester Art Museum, will serve as juror.
This is a juried exhibition, meaning that the juror will consider all eligible submissions and select certain artworks to be shown at ArtsWorcester. All Artist Members may submit up to two pieces for consideration. Due to the size of submitted artwork and the space available, the juror must be highly selective. Bring your best work!
