Norwalk, CT – The Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum located at 295 West Ave., Norwalk, CT is calling for artists for a juried exhibition titled, Socially Distant Art: Creativity in Lockdown. The submission deadline is February 15, 12 p.m. The exhibition will open on April 8 and run through Aug. 29, 2021. Artist and Trustee Gail Ingis together with Trustee Julyen Norman will select approximately 30 works from digital submissions. Works should be no more than five feet (sixty inches) on all sides.
This exhibition will be an interpretation on the pandemic experience filtered through the eye, mind, and creativity of the artist, who will be asked to submit works that relate to social distancing, isolation, the erosion and transformation of social interactions, and the multi-faceted challenges to themselves and/or the people around them caused by or in reaction to the pandemic.
Whether it is a reflection on the yearning for a Covid-free life, or an interpretation on the adversities the world has experienced and continues to endure, the Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum will welcome entries in the following categories: all fine arts media, watercolor, oil, acrylic, drawing, pastel, small sculpture, mixed media, photography, monotype, monoprint, and fiber art. A fee of $35 for four images inclusive of a one-year membership will be required to enter.
This juried exhibition will be held in the Billiards Room of the Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum. Artists can enter their work by visiting the Museum’s website www.lockwoodmathewsmansion.com to review eligibility and other instructions, as the jurying process will be conducted online.
