The Eclipse Mill Gallery in North Adams, Massachusetts is inviting professional artists in any media to submit to its spring juried exhibition titled inDIVISIBLE.
The 2016 political campaign season was incredibly stressful and contentious. It divided families, distanced friends, and challenged our perceptions of the country at large. The subsequent election of Donald J. Trump as the nation’s 45th President has deepened the divide among citizens and residents of the country. This exhibition, inDIVISIBLE, will explore themes of democracy and the American electoral system. We are looking for works that are reflective of your thoughts, experiences, and reactions to the political events of the past ten months and the impact these events have had on you personally, professionally, socially, philosophically, and/or culturally.
IMPORTANT UPDATE: The deadline has been extended to Thursday, February 9 at 11:59pm.
