The Marblehead Arts Association is calling on artists to submit to its latest in a series of shows with environmental themes.
The “GREEN SHOW: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle” in 2009 featured works in various media depicting the earth’s beauty and the threat of possible destruction. A few years later, the “Blue Show” showed artwork related to the ocean. And in January 2020, the MAA organized the “TREE Show.”
Now, inspired by a recent Boston Globe headline, “Into The Red — Climate and the Fight of Our Lives,” the Marblehead Arts Association has chosen to do the RED SHOW, which will open in March.
The MAA is encouraging its artist members to submit works in various media to show what climate change means to them. Take-in for the RED SHOW will be Tuesday, Feb. 28, 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. The opening reception for the RED SHOW is Sunday, March 5, 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Take-down will be Tuesday, April 18, 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.
MAA artist members are invited to submit one or two pieces of work to the RED SHOW. This exhibit is open to all mediums. Please print and fill out a form at https://marbleheadarts.org/wp-content/uploads/2022/03/Exhibit_Label_for_Artwork_Submission_2020.pdf prior to submitting.
The MAA may need to select only one piece due to space restrictions.There is a take-in fee of $10 per piece. There will be ballots available for visitors to cast votes for their favorite piece with a People’s Choice Award to be announced at the end of the exhibit.
Exhibitor information: All work must be framed and wired. No wet paintings will be accepted. Metal frames over 40 inches must have Plexiglas rather than glass. All two-dimensional works MUST have screw eyes (or the like) and wire across the back of the work. MAA has the right to reject work that does not comply with this.
Note: The MAA has a limited number of pedestals available; sculptors should provide their own pedestals or check with staff about availability.
