Call for Submissions Does It Match the Couch? A Juried Exploration of Color

Monmouth MuseumMiddletown, New Jersey, United States

Opportunity Description

International Deadline: April 22, 2018 – To match or not to match, that is the question!

There are varying answers, viewpoints and even more questions surrounding that age old query that has the ability to make many an artist cringe. Should you buy a piece of art because it will compliment your décor or because you like it? Is it taboo to commission an artist to create an artwork to compliment the color scheme of a room? How do interior designers select art for the spaces they design? How does color theory play a role in the creation of art? How does the color palette of a space affect your mood?

In this whimsical summertime exhibition, Does It Match the Couch? A Juried Exploration of Color, we will delve into all those questions and more. The walls of the Main Gallery will be lined with couches from local furniture establishments and the artwork will be installed strategically behind them, or if sculptural, placed nearby. Plus, we will be offering Lifelong Learning Series educational programs to fuel the inner artist and interior designer in us all.

So let’s explore the notion, should artwork be selected for its intrinsic value or just to match the color of one’s couch?

Exhibition: June 1, 2018 – September 2, 2018.

For this juried exhibition all visual arts media applications will be considered (drawing, print, painting, mixed media work, photography, sculpture, video, etc.) Open to all artists world-wide age 18 and over. All artwork entered must be the artist’s original creations completed within the last five years, and must not have been presented in past Monmouth Museum exhibitions.

$20 per entry/artwork. You may enter 1 – 4 entries.

Artworks will be considered through online submission of digital images.

Artists selected for exhibition will be contacted directly via email by Monday, May 7, 2018 Midnight EST

The Monmouth Museum encourages the sale of exhibited artwork. The Monmouth Museum will collect the purchase price for all work, take a 20% sales commission and issue a check for the remainder to the artist at the close of the exhibition.
