Opportunity Description

International Deadline: January 9, 2018 – MFA (Maryland Federation of Art) invites all 2-D and 3-D artists to submit works that illustrate what they describe as “home.” Entries are open internationally for this MFA (Maryland Federation of Art) online only exhibition. The selected artworks may be viewed on MFA’s Curve Gallery from February 15 through March 31, 2018.

Humble or grand, home is where your heart is. Whether you are home alone or with your family, roommates, packmates or swarm, home is more than a habitat – it’s a place you go when you tap your heels together three times. It could be a house, a neighborhood, a schoolyard, a nest, a lair or a hive. It could be your family or friends – or the culture from which you came. But wherever home is and whatever home is, it’s where you want to return to.

A maximum of 6 original works created within the past 3 years may be entered.

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.
