Arts at the Armory invites local artists of all ages and experience
levels to participate in our “Winter Art Show”, to be exhibited in
our Cafe in Somerville, MA, USA, during the month of January 2017.

We are looking for all kinds of creative artistic expressions having a
winter theme of some sort. Snowy landscapes, hats and scarves,
snowshoes, fireplaces, hockey, all things to do with winter. Perhaps you
have your own associations with winter… Art emerging from your own
associations is fine assuming its pertinence to the winter theme is at
least marginally evident in the piece or pieces.

You may submit multiple times, up to 5 pieces per artist. There is no
fee to submit!

Any technique and medium is welcome (photography, painting, charcoal,
mixed media, sculpture, watercolor, drawing, etc). However, submitted
pieces must be able to hang from the wall in a reasonably sized area,
i.e. no free standing sculpture, no grand scale pieces which cover an
entire wall.

Please note we are not able to receive and ship pieces by mail; artists
*must* be able to drop off and pick up pieces in person.

Show dates January 1-31, 2017
