Calls for Artists

The first way that most artists show their work at LibertyTown is through our juried shows. Check our our current opportunities below, and we hope to see your work at LibertyTown soon!

ORANGE, a National Juried Exhibition

 

ORANGE. It’s a word that is a noun, referring to a fruit and a type of tree, but also a color. It’s a word that is intertwined with Autumn here on the East Coast, as pumpkins dot porches, and leaves turn on branches. We’d love to see the gallery walls covered in all the shades of orange that inspire you…or the fruit…or the tree…or just the feeling orange gives you…

Eligibility

All artists age 16 and older, working in any media, may apply to this show. Work previously exhibited in LibertyTown’s gallery is not eligible. Work must be original and completed within the last five years.

Rules

Work accepted into the show must be for sale. Applications must be submitted electronically; no physical pieces will be accepted at the gallery for jurying. Work that will be displayed on a wall must be ready to hang, with no wet media, no sawtooth hangers, and staple-free edges. LibertyTown will provide pedestals when needed. LibertyTown reserves the right to reject works accepted by the juror due to content, space constraints, or inability to properly install the work.

Fees

A non-refundable application fee must be paid for each submitted piece before it will be juried. Payment may be submitted electronically via our website or by check delivered to LibertyTown. “Friends of LibertyTown” Members receive discounted jury fees.
