Entry Deadline: April 21, 11:59pm

The Brookline Arts Center invites New England-based artists to submit work for an exhibition of contemporary craft. Since the 1800s, New England has long been at the center of American craft from silversmithing to woodwork to textiles. In recent years, the craft movement has defied boundaries and gained recognition as an art form in its own right. What defines studio craft today? How does it navigate between function and fine art?
All artists residing in New England (Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island) are eligible to submit work. All applications must be entered online through the BAC's submission form.
*The Brookline Arts Center reserves the right to withdraw acceptance if quality does not reflect images or if the artist violates requirements.
Artists will be notified of their submission status via e-mail by 5:00pm on Friday, May 5, 2017. If your work is accepted, it must arrive presentation ready (with appropriate installation materials) by 5:00pm on Friday, June 9, 2017. Shipped work must be received in reusable wrapping with check or prepaid label for return shipping. Work must remain on exhibit through Friday, July 21, 2017.
