OBOB Call for Art: Monster Misunderstood

One Book One Belmont 2018: Frankenstein by Mary Shelley

Call for Art!
Monster Misunderstood
The Art of Frankenstein
Belmont Public Library
(Oct. 1-Nov.17, 2018)

The Belmont Gallery of Art is looking for artists to submit work that creatively interprets Mary Shelley’s classic novel, “Frankenstein.”

The BGA’s “Monster Misunderstood” exhibit is in collaboration with the Belmont Public Library’s One Book One Belmont town-wide read of Frankenstein. “Monster Misunderstood” is the featured inaugural show of the BGA’s new gallery partnership with the library.

With themes that include nature, science, identity, prejudice, isolation, alienation and family, Shelley’s Frankenstein–though originally published 200 years ago–still has a resonance to the many difficult issues that face our world today. The BGA encourages artists to explore such issues and themes in their submissions to the “Monster Misunderstood” exhibit.

Both 2 and 3D media accepted for “Monster Misunderstood” including: textiles, ceramics, assemblage, painting, collage,/mixed media, drawings, prints and photography.

****Deadline for online submissions is September 15****

IMPORTANT! Please note: There is no Prospectus for the Monster Misunderstood show. Call is open to artists 18 and older.
All submissions to the exhibit should be sent directly by email to:
BGA Director Rebecca Richards at: [email protected]. Please include Frankenstein Submission
in the subject line. Images submitted should be hi-res jpg.

One submission per artist.
Application fee $10 payable at Drop-Off.
Deadline: Sept. 15 at 6pm. Artists notified of acceptance by Sept. 19th. Please contact the BGA with any questions. We look forward to seeing your work. Thank you!
