METC Sidewalk Art Gallery Show




The Museum of Early Trades & Crafts (METC) is inviting New Jersey artists to submit artwork for an exhibition held in the METC Education Annex in October 2021. Artists are invited to create original fine artwork on canvas material that will be provided. Each banner will be a one-of-a-kind work of art using any medium of the artist’s choice reflecting the theme of “Hope.”

The canvas banners are 24’ x 36’ and will be on display in the Museum’s Education Annex windows for a period of three months starting on October 27, 2021 and ending February 28, 2022. At the end of the exhibition, METC will host a reception where the banners will be sold and/or auctioned. The sales/auction price will be divided between the artist (60%) METC (40%).

METC selected 'Hope' as its first 2021  Artists' Showcase theme, recognizing that the COVID-19 crisis has touched the lives of every individual across the globe. Although the pandemic continues, we see the resiliency of people shining through even the darkest days toward better and safer times and this gives us all Hope. We invite artists to produce a work that reflects this theme.


All artwork must be the artist’s original work and must be the unique use of the image.

Submissions for consideration must be received by April 16, 2021. We will only accept submissions that are accompanied by sketches and detailed information as outlined on the Entry form attached. The Curator of Collections and Executive Director will accept only 15 submissions at their discretion. Submission of artwork does not guarantee acceptance or inclusion in the exhibit.

We reserve the right to refuse any banner that does not conform to the above standards. The selection committee has final say on determining the eligibility of the artwork.

All final work must be completely prepared in the above manner for the exhibition and must be received by October 15, 2021

Artists may leave a small border around the work so that the image can be easily stretched over a frame; this is not a requirement.

No commercial advertising.

The Museum of Early Trades & Crafts (METC) assumes the right to photograph and use accepted work for documentation, education, or publicity purposes and reserve the right to reject any work not conforming to this Agreement.
