Community Exhibition at the Brush Art Gallery and Studios
May 1 - June 12
Community showcases 32 artists at different stages in their careers and from across the U.S. Those interested in exhibiting were invited to submit up to three images for consideration. Six hundred dollars in prizes will be awarded at the reception.
Why this theme? Lowell National Historical Park is currently partnering with community members to develop a future exhibit in the Mogan Cultural Center about Lowell’s cultural diversity. As another way to explore cultural expression we want to show how artists from across the country experience or observe “community” for this juried exhibition at the Brush Art Gallery and Studios. Community connections could be place-based (neighborhoods, businesses), practice-centered (sports, social clubs, virtual), and goal or belief-centered (religion, politics). Artists were invited to share what “community” looks like to them and to show us how they represent it.
The exhibition will be on view May 1 to June 12, 2021, with the virtual opening reception on Saturday, May 8, at 2:00 p.m.
