It’s our 10th anniversary! That’s right, the Belmont Gallery of Art opened its doors to the public for the very first time in July 2005. In the years that followed, we mounted over 60 unique, compelling, inspirational exhibits showcasing the talents of several hundred local and regional artists from New England and beyond. The BGA has also enlightened and entertained thousands of visitors, and served as an anchor and outlet for Belmont’s own prodigious community of artists. Now, that’s something to celebrate!
To mark this extraordinary milestone, the BGA plans a 10th Anniversary Show — fittingly entitled “Celebrate!” — to honor the work of the many artists who made our first ten years a rousing success. The show will feature one work from each participating artist. If your work has been exhibited at the Gallery at any time, the BGA invites you to submit NEW work for inclusion in our anniversary show.
For full details, be sure to read the application form!
Eligibility: Any artist who has exhibited work in any BGA show over the last 10 years is eligible to participate. One artwork submitted by each eligible artist will be included in the show, space permitting. Artists are encouraged—but not required—to submit up to 3 works reflecting the theme: “Celebrate!” NEW artwork (never displayed at the BGA) in any medium may be submitted for consideration. The BGA cannot accept artwork larger than 5 ft. in any dimension, or explicit depictions of nudity.
Submission Deadline: August 31, by midnight EST
Application form must be received by the BGA on or before midnight EST on August 31, 2015, by email or USPS mail, with JPG images (72ppi, no side larger than 10”).
