Elemental: Earth, Fire, Water, Air

This Deadline Expired: Thursday, September 2, 2021

Early chemists believed these were the elements of life and reality, and when surrounded by them, it’s not hard to see why. Pieces that involve any of the four elements in any way, by medium or subject, will be eligible for this online show. Entries are open to all original 2-D or 3-D artwork. MFA will display selected works in their online Curve Gallery from October 15 through November 30, 2021. Show Chairs: Richard Niewerth and Wil Scott.
