ART MD 2008
Applications are now available for ART MD 2008 through September 2, 2008. This is a biennial juried exhbit, which features pieces from artists, 18 years or older, residing in Maryland or within 100-mile radius of the Howard County Arts Council. Artists can submit up to three works. Guest juror Dr. Leslie King-Hammond, Ph.D., Graduate Dean Emeritus, Director of the Center for Race and Culture, Maryland Institute of ART, will select work to be exhbited October 31 to December 12, 2008.
The exhibits program at the Howard County Center for the Arts was established to enhance the public's appreciation of the visual arts, to provide a professional venue to exhibit the work of local and regional artists, and to provide leadership in the arts by presenting a broad spectrum of visual arts in all media, both traditional and contemporary. Exhibits are free and open to the public. The program showcases the work of local, regional and national artists - emerging and established - working in all media.
Eight to ten exhibits are presented annually. Artists and curators interested in having their work presented are asked to submit images and proposals for consideration. Exhibits are selected and presented in the context of multi-disciplinary, thematic, juried and invitational exhibits. This broad curatorial approach ensures that the program presents diverse artistic viewpoints while meeting the needs of the community.
