Spring Exhibition: “Rise”

Spring Exhibition: “Rise”

This Deadline Expired: Sunday, March 28, 2021

This spring feels especially full of renewal as we begin to rise from this pandemic, as we raise up our voices for justice, as we bloom and rise into the light.

All artists are invited to submit their work for consideration to a Virtual Exhibition curated by Play + Inspire Gallery directors, Rebecca Potts and Maria Coit.

All submissions will be considered for their social media, podcast interviews, blog, and future opportunities.

All visual arts media and international artists are invited to apply. You do not have to be an art educator to apply!

Accepted artists will be invited to share a brief video of their process and concepts, which will be included on their artist page. Videos are NOT required, but are an added bonus – a way for you to share more about your work with our audience.

6 Artists will also be invited to do an instagram live studio visit!

They will be creating several lesson plans based on the themes in the show and on individual works in the show.

Artists who are not juried into the show will receive feedback on their submission.
Deadline to Submit: March 28, 2021

Artists will be notified by April 2nd, 2021. Show runs April 16 – June 11, 2021.

Please note that there is a $20 submission fee, which supports Play + Inspire gallery as an independent curatorial platform. Play + Inspire Gallery is a curatorial collaboration between Rebecca Potts of Teaching Artist Podcast and Maria Coit of Curated for Kids. They are both artists and teachers (and parents), running these projects alongside their other work. As such, they truly understand the barrier submission fees can create, while also valuing the time and effort that goes into creative work and all the behind-the-scenes administrative work of supporting artists.

In order to break down this barrier while also valuing our own time, this is a sliding fee scale opportunity with a suggested fee of $20 to support their work, but with the opportunity to apply for as low as $8 if you are unable to pay the suggested fee.
