    A curated exhibit to celebrate love in its many fabulous forms, and shine a light on the artful joy of our community. We encourage artists to interpret the theme creatively and broadly. Note that due to the size of the Firehouse gallery the exhibit will be limited to 25-30 pieces. Selection will be based on the strength of the artwork and creative engagement with the theme. Deadline to Submit: Sunday, January 31st, 2021
    We are thrilled to announce the Call for Entries for a new pop-up exhibition, Love is LOVE! Love is LOVE, created in collaboration with the Firehouse Center for the Arts, is a curated exhibition to celebrate love in its many fabulous forms, and shine a light on the artful joy of our community!
    Works will be exhibited at the Firehouse Gallery as part of an exciting partnership that benefits both the Firehouse and the NAA, bringing foot-traffic and visitors to the Firehouse while their theater is closed, and providing much-needed additional exhibition space to the NAA while our upstairs gallery is closed. Perhaps most importantly, the exhibition will bring a burst of liveliness, imagination, and joy to our greater community during these challenging times, and we encourage artists to interpret the theme “Love is LOVE!” broadly and creatively!
