Internet 4th Annual Street Scenes
International Deadline: January 15, 2019 – Maryland Federation of Art (MFA) invites all artists to enter its 4th Street Scenes competition. Open to any original 2-D or 3-D work that depicts what resonates with you in towns and cities, large and small; people, shops, traffic – anything at all that evokes a distinctive sense of a place. Streets, lanes and country roads tell the stories of communities. Who and what we see there defines a place in our memories.
Works selected will be displayed online in MFA’s Curve Gallery, from February 15 to March 31, 2019. The exhibition chair is Wil Scott.
Open to artists worldwide.

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.
