Valerie Culbertson, director of HealingNewtown, has issued a call for entries for “A Celebration of Life,” a collage exhibit to be presented June 27 to August 8, at Newtown Municipal Center.
The show, to be curated by Ms Culbertson and Meegan Foley, will pay tribute to how each person can individually honor and celebrate their lives in a way that brings joy, meaning and fulfillment.
“The exhibit will highlight the diversity of collage,” Ms. Culbertson noted, “that is currently being created in Connecticut by emerging and established artists.”
Open to all artists 18 years of age and older residing in Connecticut, entrants may submit up to three pieces of original artwork. Collage work is limited to mixed media, low relief which includes text. All works on paper must be presented framed, under glass, and installation ready using professional hardware and wire.
Each work is not to exceed 36 square inches.
Entry deadline is June 1. Those accepted will be notified by e-mail by June 8.
