Call for Artists - Hosmer Gallery of Forbes Library

Beginning May 12, the Hosmer Art Gallery is accepting applications for exhibits by local artists.  Artists interested in showing their work should apply by June 20, 2014 for exhibit opportunities between January and December 2015.

The gallery was inaugurated in 2002 and and is dedicated to the memory of Valley graphic artist Jean E. Hosmer. The space can accommodate a variety of art formats.  It is designed to provide opportunities for local artists to show their work to the public.  Exhibits include a wide range of media and content reflecting the diversity of the Pioneer Valley community.

The application process is simple and is open to all artists living and working in the greater Northampton area. Criteria for review include technical and artistic quality, a coherent theme, and contribution to an interesting and varied program for the year. First-time exhibitors are welcome. Applications may be picked up at the library, or downloaded from the library web site.
