Celebrating Diversity

The West Hartford Art League is accepting entries for an exhibit in January celebrating Martin Luther King and Black History month. “Celebrating Diversity” is an open call for all artists of color.

Work for the exhibit will be selected by Stanwyck Cromwell,  a Guyanese-born, second generation visual artist and former Adjunct Art professor at Capital Community College, in Hartford, CT.  Cromwell has spent the vast majority of his adult life in the United States of America and currently resides in Bloomfield, CT.

A $500 cash award for “Best of Show” will also be awarded.

Show dates are Jan. 12 through Feb. 26, 2023. There is no fee to enter work. Up to three works of art may be entered, with a limit of two acceptances.

Interested artists can register online at westhartfordart.org/call-for-artists.

Please call  860-231-8019 if you have questions.
