We are accepting proposals for installations, murals, and exhibitions at our 301 Cabot Street building. We have two window-front galleries (Side A and Side B), both roughly 8X16’. Artists will be shown in one-month cycles (see schedule below). Selected artists will be awarded a $500 honorarium for the completion of their project and participation in a public Virtual-Visiting Artist talk.

We are interested in all visual media and encourage projects that push boundaries and challenge the space. 

Artists will be expected to work independently, provide all their own supplies, tools, display implements, and install/de-install according to schedule. 

Accepted artists will receive:

  • $500 Honorarium
  • Exhibition space for roughly one month
  • Website hosted on Montserrat.edu
  • Media Coverage
  • A recorded Visiting Artist talk 

DEADLINE

Submissions will be reviewed and awarded on a rolling basis, we encourage artists to apply as soon as they have a concept. 

Soft Deadline 1: August 30, 11:59pm 

Soft Deadline 2: November 1, 11:59pm
