Call for art" Memoirs"
Posted: May 27, 2021
Theme / Media: We all have multiple stories of how we came to be the people we are and the community(ies) we inhabit. In Stories we hope to share the diversity of amateur and professional artists, musicians, writers, dancers, and performers. So who are you? How did you come to be the person that you are? How did you come to believe what you believe in? Have you journeyed from far away? Have you lived in Lynn all your life? Have you witnessed something that changed you, experienced amazing things, dealt with confrontations or addictions, tragedies/failures, or successes/battles won? Who are you? Who do you want to be?
Submit your visual artwork 2D/3D, music, poetry, or proposal for a performance or dance. This exhibit will be on and off the walls(sound/performance etc.) and may morph into a ‘zine’ or event within our gallery space and into our social media.

Any type of 2D and limited 3D media may be submitted – painting, photos, drawing, collage, craft, etc.
