Online View of Exhibit
“Community” showcases artists at different stages in their careers and from across the United States. Those interested in exhibiting were invited to submit up to three images for consideration. Six hundred dollars in prizes will be awarded at the reception.

Why this theme? Lowell National Historical Park is currently partnering with community members to develop a future exhibit in the Mogan Cultural Center about Lowell’s cultural diversity. As another way to explore cultural expression we would like to see how artists from across the country experience or observe “community” for this juried exhibition at the Brush Art Gallery and Studios.

Community connections could be place-based (neighborhoods, businesses), practice-centered (sports, social clubs, virtual), and goal or belief-centered (religion, politics). Artists were asked to share what “community” looks like to them and to show us how they represent it.

The panel of exhibition jurors: Ekua Holmes -- Artist, illustrator, curator and an active member of Boston’s art community. Beth C. McLaughlin -- Artistic Director and Chief Curator of Fuller Craft Museum in Brockton, Massachusetts. Marjorie Rawle -- Based in Greater Boston and is the Terrana Assistant Curator at the Fitchburg Art Museum.

The exhibition will be on view May 1 to June 12, 2021, with the virtual opening reception on Saturday May 8 at 2:00 PM EDT.
