Cape Cod Art Center and Cape Cod Museum of Art are seeking entries for "PIXELS" a Digital Art Exhibition which will be held at the Cape Cod Museum of Art in Dennis, MA.

Exhibition Dates: November 22, 2023 - February 11, 2024

Entry Deadline: Friday, October 13 at midnight

Digital Art is an artistic work or practice that uses digital technology as an essential part of the creative process.  This includes the use of computers, mobile phones or portable handheld devices in conjunction with a variety of apps. Digital art can take many forms - "paintings" made entirely of pixels, collage, original photography, animation and video. 

Artists of all levels are invited to submit up to five works of digital art to be juried into PIXELS, the  first exhibition devoted exclusively to Digital Art at the Cape Cod Museum of Art (CCMoA).  Subject matter is open to the discretion of the artist.  The curators are looking for work that is creative and demonstrates the wide range of possibilities in the creation of Digital Art.  PIXELS will also be shown on the Cape Cod Museum of Art website.

AWARDS: Three works will be selected by the Juror to receive monetary awards of: $300, $200 and $100 at the reception.  Other prizes may be given at the discretion of the Curators.

SALE OF ART: Artwork selected for the exhibition can be made available to the public for sale, with 60% of the proceeds going directly to the artist, and 40% to the CCMoA.  The Museum provides this option in an effort to help support artists during demanding times, while also supporting the Museum.
