Are you a Western Massachusetts artist looking for a new way to display your work? The Springfield Central Cultural District seeks area artists to fill three unconventional galleries in Downtown Springfield with artwork.
Western Massachusetts artists who submit their 2D and 3D creations for consideration through Sept. 1 may see their work displayed in new galleries at New England Public Radio, SilverBrick Lofts and 1550 Main Street.
"The gallery spaces range from a small community meeting space at NEPR which has been used for their youth arts program MediaLab and yoga classes, to the highly visible first-floor lobby of 1550 Main trafficked by hundreds of people daily, to a large community space at SilverBrick Lofts housing two mammoth, historic boilers," The Springfield Central Cultural District wrote in a press release. "The SCCD hopes artists will draw inspiration from these differing spaces."
A joint reception for the featured artists will take place in October, the press release said. The creations will be for sale while on display, with proceeds going to the artist.
The call for works is part of the Springfield Central Cultural District's ongoing effort to incorporate art into Downtown Springfield. Recently, the organization chose artists to beautify Springfield utility boxes.
Interested artists must fill out an application with their contact information, resume, sample work artist statement and proposed works. Submissions are open until Sept. 1. For more information, visit springfieldculture.org/artistresources.
