Call for Art
BSB Gallery in Trenton is accepting artwork in all mediums for its exhibit “Thoughts and Prayers, Another Round of Vacant Stares,” to be held August 13 through September 19. A decision will be made at a later date if the exhibit will be virtual or in-person. The gallery seeks artwork that examines the impact that guns have within our nation, as a symbol of power and freedom, or as an instrument to incite fear and cause harm. Artwork should facilitate a dialog on the divisive iconology of guns, and the power or fear they represent. The deadline for submissions is Tuesday, June 30. Artists may submit up to three works. For full submission guidelines visit www.bsbgallery.com/callforart2020.
All are invited to take part in the Lawrence Hopewell Trail’s Art on the Trail program launching to create and share art inspired by the walking and biking trail that runs through Lawrence and Hopewell townships.
Take a walk along the trail with your cameras or art supplies and create drawings, paintings, videos and photos of scenes along the Lawrence Hopewell Trail. Submit images to www.lhtrail.org/upload-trail-artwork, and the LHT will share the best of them online, through social media, and in future LHT publications.
The program will have monthly themes as follows: June and July, landscapes, submitted by July 31; August and September, flora and fauna, submitted by September 30; October and November, art inspired by waterways, submitted by November 30; December and January, 2021, still life of objects found on the trail, submitted by January 31; February and March, architecture along the trail, submitted by March 31; April and May, self-portrait on the trail, submitted by May 31.
