Call for Artists: “USED”
A National Juried Exhibition at the Attleboro Arts Museum in Attleboro, MA


Exhibition: June 16th–July 14th, 2023
Opening Awards Reception: Saturday, June 17th, 2pm – 4pm
The Attleboro Arts Museum invites all U.S. artists to submit interpretations of “USED.” Open to all mediums, sizes and concepts. For instance: “I only read used books; she used me and broke my heart; that high-rise apartment used to be a lush garden; used clothing shops are my go-to; I’ve gotten used to their dry humor.”

Consider creating with re-purposed materials; depicting well-loved toys; representing cherished antiques; something borrowed; other.

Six prizes of $100 each will be awarded.

Each artist may submit up to two different entries.
To show the front & back of 3D art, submit one composite image that contains alternative views. Do not show alternative views as a second entry. All mediums and interpretations of USED from U.S. artists will be juried.
There is no size limitation per entry, however all submissions (both 2D & 3D) cannot weigh over 100 lbs each. Work must not have been previously exhibited at the Attleboro Arts Museum (AAM) at any time.
Name each submitted file with the title of the art and artist’s last name (ex: I’m Used to It_Jones.jpg). Please avoid using “Untitled” to name your work. Artists can submit 2D, 3D, installation, audio/video work. If selected, all tech, accessories and specialized hardware must be supplied (monitors, projectors, cables, etc.) along with a detailed diagram for installation. Artists are asked to provide a brief statement about the concept behind each USED submission.
