Call Description:
The Stamford Art Association (SAA) and The Stamford History Center (SHC) have partnered to create a special event looking at the broad perspective of how history is represented in the artist’s work, i.e., how an artist uses history -personal or communal – to inform their work. The in-person juried exhibit will be presented at the Stamford History Center, 1508 High Ridge Road, Stamford, CT. This is a multimedia juried exhibit with cash prizes. SAA is asking artists to submit 1-5 pieces of artwork on the theme. Your work must not exceed 60×48 framed and must be wired for hanging.

Deadline for Entry. Sunday, June 13, 2021, by Midnight. Artists will be notified of acceptance by June 20, 2021 on the Stamford Art Association website www.stamfordartassociation.org under Opportunities, Call for Artists, Learn More.

Receiving. June 25-26, 2021, 9am-12pm at Stamford History Center, 1508 High Ridge Road, Stamford CT.
