Calling all artists: Works wanted for Art in Bloom exhibit

Whether you’re a seasoned artist or just starting out, consider contributing your artwork to ArtScape’s upcoming Art in Bloom exhibit, running March 11 through May 25 at the Fowler Library.  

For more than a decade, ArtScape has been a lively hub for art, providing opportunities for individuals of all ages, backgrounds, and skill levels to exhibit their work. Director Ann Sussman emphasized the inclusive nature of ArtScape’s exhibits, stating “ArtScape’s shows are really about having people try new things and see themselves in new ways. Our open-calls for art encourage people to explore and express their creativity.” 

“Last year, a grandmother delivered her work and also entered a piece by her granddaughter. It was intergenerational creativity on display, an opportunity they apparently hadn’t had before and which made them both very happy.” 

The prompt for the spring show is Art in Bloom. “Prompts are intended to spur creativity,” Sussman noted. “Art in Bloom can be taken literally, such as flowers, or figuratively, symbolizing new beginnings, growth, or joy. It’s always amazing to see what people come up with.” 

To participate, drop off your artwork March 1–3 at ArtScape, 43 Bradford St., West Concord between noon and 4:00 PM. Wall-art must be ready-to-hang, and there is a $10 hanging fee per artist, waived for students. Questions? Email:
