The collaboration of the Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum and The Stamford Art Association, downtown Stamford’s “last gallery standing” celebrating its 50th year, welcomes artists from various media to exhibit work that shows how architecture evolves through time and how it influences society. The exhibition explores artists’ interpretations about diversity of space, structural elements, and buildings of the past and the present, showing the impact architecture has in their creative process and how they integrate these elements into their representational or abstract work.
The Stamford Art Association and the Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum will welcome entries in the following categories: all fine arts media, watercolor, oil, acrylic, drawing, pastel, mixed media, photography, monotype, monoprint,and prints. Due to space restrictions, no sculptures or artwork that cannot be hung will be accepted.
Artists will be notified of acceptance by July 17, 2021 on The Stamford Art Association’s website www.stamfordartassociation.org under Opportunities, Call for Artists, Learn More.
