Final Call for entries

BRATTLEBORO — A group of local artists and artisans have initiated a call for art that reflects on the current political situation. Titled "Raised Voices: Local Artists Resist!" the organizers invite you to "stand up and express your hopes, your outrage, your vision," in the face of the times we are living through.

It will culminate in an exhibit throughout May at the River Garden. An opening reception will take place May 4, Gallery Walk Friday.

This call for art is open to all mediums, including writing (one page maximum and presented as visually engaging) that can be wall-hung.

Performers are invited to submit as well (send video or description) for a five-minute piece to be performed at the reception.

Artists may submit a maximum of two pieces of wall art. Art must be no more than 36" wide and 36" tall.

A non-refundable jury fee of $20 is due with the application.

All proceeds, including jury fees, will go to three organizations: Planned Parenthood of Northern New England — Brattleboro, ACLU Foundation of Vermont, and Vermont Workers' Center. Artists may choose 50 percent or 100 percent of proceeds from work sold to go to these organizations.

Organizers for "Raised Voices!" are Jackie Abrams, Kay Curtis, Arlene Distler, Kris McDermet, and Petria Mitchell.

Deadline for submission is March 15. All work must be submitted digitally. To receive an entry form, for further details on submission requirements, and any questions, email
