The Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum is calling for artists for a juried exhibition titled, Hues of Freedom. The submission deadline is Mon., Aug. 8 at midnight. The exhibition will open on Oct. 20 and run through Dec. 18, 2022, and be displayed in the Billiards Room at the Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum. An opening reception will be held on Thursday, October 20 for artists, their guests, and the public.
As the word freedom can be subject to diverse interpretations, this exhibition will explore how artists depict the concept in their work, filtered through their creative process and drawn from their unique visualization of this multi-faceted concern be it in life, art, or history.
The jurying process will be conducted online by artist and Trustee Gail Ingis, who will select approximately 30 works from digital submissions.
