An open call for artwork from all BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) artists located in upstate New York (Western NY, Finger Lakes, Central NY, and Southern Tier regions). There is no submission fee for this opportunity. This call for work will result in a group exhibition and will also be a way for us to become acquainted with more BIPOC artists in our region as we plan our 2021 calendar and beyond. All artists who submit will have at least one piece included in this exhibition. Artists may submit up to six pieces. The exhibition will be held in the second floor gallery space as well as on our interactive exhibitions website.
