Call for Artists – June Solo Exhibition

The Center for Arts at The Armory – Somerville, MA

Application Deadline: Wednesday, May 15th, 2019

Show Dates: May 29th – June 28th

Location: The Armory Café

Arts at the Armory is now accepting artist submissions for our June Solo Artist Exhibit in The Armory Café.

The Armory is looking to host a solo artist show through the end of June. We would like to hang the works between May 23rd and the 29th. There is no specific theme for our June Solo Show and all mediums are welcome, however, all art submitted should be able to be hung on the walls via our picture rail and hook system. (No large free-standing pieces, sorry!)

To be selected for our show, you must have enough available work to fill our gallery – depending upon your artworks’ dimensions this could be 5-6 larger scale works or approximately 20 smaller pieces. You do not need to submit all available pieces for consideration, but please submit enough works so that our team can get a sense of your style.

To Submit Work:

Please email digital images of your artwork to exhibits@artsatthearmory.org. We can accept JPG or PDF file types.

The body of your submission email should contain the below information:

  1. Artist (Your) Name
  2. Bio or Artist Statement
  3. Average size of your artwork
  4. Approximate number of pieces to exhibit
  5. Confirmation that you are available and ready to install all work between May 23rd and 29th

Please include “Call For Artists, June Solo Exhibit 2019, [Your Name]” in your email subject line. If selected for the show, original art pieces will be requested. Please do not submit any original art pieces in person during the selection process.

The deadline for submissions is 12pm (noon) on Wednesday, May 15, 2019.
