BIG WORKS – Members Open Show. April 2nd – April 24, 2021. Call for Submissions!
Sponsored by The Newburyport Art Association & The Firehouse Center for the Arts
Size is one of the most effective ways to visually communicate an idea.
An oversized painting may have a very different impact than one that is smaller in scale.
Big Works is an open show for NAA Artist Members. The artwork will be on exhibit both at the Institution for Savings Art Gallery located at the Firehouse Center for the Arts, and also at the Newburyport Art Association in the Sargent Gallery. Due to space limitations, the call will open for entries on Monday March 1st and close when we have reached capacity (based on size of works submitted and exhibition space.) We look forward to your entry. Also please note that some selected artwork will be transported to the Firehouse for exhibit purposes.
