CALL FOR ART
8th Juried Exhibition
Sohn Fine Art continues its decade-long commitment to supporting artists’ careers and creative projects. We believe in the power art can have on personal expression and positive change, and in its ability to bring joy and inspiration to people and communities. In these uncertain times, art is more important than ever. This is why we are presenting a call for art, an opportunity for you to share your voice with the public and have your work presented at Sohn Fine Art.
This open call for photography will result in an exhibition of chosen work at Sohn Fine Art. The gallery is located in the heart of the Berkshires in Lenox, MA. Any genre of photography can be submitted and all photographic mediums are eligible for submission. This exhibition will be curated and judged by Sohn Fine Art’s Director, Cassandra Sohn.
The submission deadline is June 30, 2020. The exhibition will be on view November 20, 2020 – January 25, 2021, with an artist reception Saturday, December 5, where show winners will be announced. The People's Choice Award Winner will be announced at the end of the exhibition, January 25th. Please note that due to current circumstances, exhibition dates are subject to change.
Approximately 20 photographs will be accepted into the exhibition. All work will be judged anonymously. The 1st Place Winner will receive a $500 fine art printing credit to use toward printing their own work through the gallery’s fine art printing division.
