Call For Art: Member Exhibition 

The Mosesian Center for the Arts invites artists to submit original work to our upcoming Member Exhibition. Register or login to submit art.

New for this year, in our on-going effort to provide meaningful opportunities to artists, a panel of guest jurors from North East regional art centers and galleries will jury a “Best in Show” cash prize. Each member is guaranteed at least one piece in the show. Additional pieces will be included pending available space and jury outcomes. 

The Opening Reception for this year’s Member Exhibition will coincide with The Mosesian Center for the Arts Annual Meeting. And the “Best in Show” cash prize award will be announced that evening.
