Opportunity for artists – age 18 and older

 

A CALL FOR ART – WOMAN’S RIGHT TO VOTE 2020

Passed by Congress June 4, 1919, and ratified on August 18, 1920, the 19th amendment granted women the right to vote. In honor of the 100th anniversary of this historic event, the Bangor Public Library is hosting a unique art exhibit. Artists are invited to create a work in honor of this event and submit it for a juried exhibit to be held at the library from September 2020 to January 2021. 

Artists! Put your creativity to work. Think about the impact this ruling has had on women in this country. Think about the impact on all segments of the population. Use your creative voice to help others to know more about this incredible accomplishment! 

ENTRIES

Artists will submit original work, one work per artist. Artists must be 18 years old or older.

Artists may use any 2-D media for this project. 

The work itself must be ready to hang in the gallery. 

Artist contact information must be on the back of the submission and must include name, address, phone contact, and email contact information. 

Artists must also complete a submission form to turn in with their work.

JUDGING

The works will be juried and works will be displayed in the library from September 1, 2020 – January 30, 2021, in prominent galleries. 

EXHIBITION 

Due to the pandemic, a number of possibilities have been considered. 

The library does intend to display the work in the galleries. 

Digital images will be taken and the exhibit will be available on the library web site. 

The library plans to display scanned images of the work in downtown Bangor, if possible. 

The library plans to create an exhibit catalogue for each participant. 

A speaker series will help to bring the topic of Woman’s Suffrage to a broader audience. 

TIMELINE

The art work and submission form must be delivered to the library on August 30, 2020. 

Because of these times, we may not be able to hold a traditional reception but the library will find a way to honor the artists and their work. 

Works that have been displayed as part of the exhibit should be picked up on February 1, 2021, at the end of the exhibit. 

The library cannot be responsible for lost or damaged art work.
