Eligibility:

"UNMASKED”: to reveal the true character of; a revelation; an unveiling.

​McCord Gallery invites artists to apply for the upcoming exhibition "Unmasked". After a year of being hidden behind our masks, we hope to capture the artist's interpretation of "unmasking": to reveal the true character of something. It's an unveiling; exposing what was hidden; revealing the unexpected, literally or figuratively. What can be seen in a new way?

For this exhibition, we are seeking works of art created with Acrylic, Charcoal, Collage, Color Pencil, Drawings, Mixed Media, Oil, Pastel, Pen & Ink, and Watercolor ONLY. Artwork executed in any other medium other than those noted will NOT be accepted. NO Giclees or reproductions of original works will be accepted. All subject matter is included. Artists may submit up to 2 works for consideration for both the in-gallery exhibit and full virtual gallery of works on our website. All submissions will be considered. All styles and aesthetics are accepted, from traditional to contemporary. McCord Gallery selections are based on creativity, quality of artistry and originality as represented in the images submitted. The McCord Gallery & Cultural Center is a non-profit art gallery open to everyone; as such, the content of submissions should be appropriate for all viewers.
