Pivot—National Juried Exhibition
juried by Katherine French, Gallery Director, Catamount Arts
April 8 – May 22, 2021
Pivot (to be hung in the Bancroft Gallery at SSAC)
VIRTUAL OPENING RECEPTION: Thursday, April 8, 7PM
National Show Open to all media, original works of the Pivot theme.
ABOUT THE THEME: The word “pivot” is highly visual, immediately evoking an object mid-spin. The term became ubiquitous during 2020 as the COVID-19 pandemic stopped the world, and each of us needed to adapt the way we completed even the most mundane tasks. The concept of pivoting became more nuanced as the year progressed, and we experienced national unrest. South Shore Art Center looks forward to presenting a kinetic, emotionally-charged exhibition that captures a year in crisis with artistic response.
ENTRY DEADLINE: Monday March 15, 2021 end of day. Accepted works posted on website by end of day Tuesday, March 23.
$25 for three images. $10 for each additional image up to 6 total images.
