Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum Call for Artists for New Exhibition on Freedom

The Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum located at 295 West Ave., Norwalk, CT is calling for artists for a juried exhibition titled, Hues of Freedom. The submission deadline is Aug. 8, 2022 at midnight. 

The exhibition will open on Oct. 20, 2022 with a reception at 5:30 p.m. and run through Dec. 18, 2022. Artist and Trustee Gail Ingis will select approximately 30 works from digital submissions.

As the word freedom can be subject to diverse interpretations, this exhibition will explore how artists depict the concept in their work, filtered through their creative process and drawn from their unique visualization of this multi-faceted concern be it in life, art, or history.

Ms. Ingis said, “I look forward to seeing the artists’ submissions, which I believe will be thought-provoking and inspiring to our viewers.”

A fee of $35 for 4 images inclusive of a one-year membership will be required to enter. Works should be no more than five feet (sixty inches) on all sides.
