Opportunity Description

International Deadline: September 7, 2022 – From farm to table, from fields and gardens, from land and sea – food sustains our bodies as art sustains our souls. For each person, food has a story and a history. Food can help define our community and sometimes our community needs help being fed. We work as a community to feed our neighbors.

A portion of the proceeds from this show go to support the Anne Arundel County Food Bank. Show us how food has shaped your story through art.

Works selected by the juror will be on display in MFA’s online gallery, Curve Gallery, from October 15 – November 30, 2022.

ELIGIBILITY
Entry is open to all artists internationally. Entries are open to all original 2D or 3D art- work. All entries must be original and completed solely by the artist’s hand.

Work previously exhibited at MFA Curve Gallery is not eligible for re-entry. There is no size limit for online exhibitions. Work must be for sale.

JUROR
Katie Commodore is a practicing fine artist exhibiting nationally and internationally. She attended the Maryland Institute College of Art, graduating with a BFA in Illustration.

She has also worked at several museums, including the Aldrich Museum in Connecticut, was a Majordomo for a Boutique PR Firm in NYC, and as the Administrative Director of Crux LCA, a cooperative of Black XR Creatives and Producers that focuses on Black storytelling and creating a foothold in the burgeoning vocabulary of new media of VR and creating Black wealth.

About:
The MFA incorporated as a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization in 1968 and, through the hard work of a growing and enthusiastic membership, opened the Circle Gallery located at 18 State Circle, just steps away from the State House in Annapolis. The gallery is located in a restored loft space in the heart of the Annapolis Historic District and has been operating continuously since opening its doors. The MFA has also reached out beyond its doors through its Alternate Space efforts, often bringing art to unexpected places.
