Call for Art | HCA Members Show

The Hopkinton Center for the Arts (HCA) seeks artwork for our annual HCA Members show. The exhibition will be on display in the Lotvin Family Gallery from December 17, 2021—January 28, 2022. 

THE DEADLINE TO SUBMIT ARTWORK IS: November 29 at 6:00 pm.

HCA Members are invited to submit online applications containing 1 or 2 works of art no larger than 30" wide. All media are welcome, including framed painting, drawing, photography, and prints - and wall-hung sculpture if it does not protrude more than 10 inches, and the widest dimension is 30". Use the link below to submit.

Two dimensional work must be wired for hanging. Your work will not be accepted if it is not properly framed and wired. Please contact Sarah Alexander at sarah@hopartscenter.org or MarionBuricatu at marion@hopartscenter.org if you have a different hanging system (for example cleats on metal printed photos, etc.)

See instructions here: Framing Guidelines | Hopkinton Arts (hopartscenter.org)

All entries should be original artwork created in the last 5 years by an HCA member of any age, but not shown previously at HCA. One or two artworks will be chosen for every HCA member who submits for this exhibition, depending on space considerations.
