Below are the current calls from the Arts Council. In addition, review the program pages found on our website that will provide more  context for work with artists.

Call to Artist for the Inside-Out Gallery for the Dark Tales, Familiars and Object of Divination Exhibit
with guest curator, Boriana Kantcheva. Deadline October 6th

To celebrate the Fall and the spookiest and most mysterious month of all, October, the Somerville Arts Council's Inside Out Gallery at Davis Square invites Somerville based artists, Somerville residents or artists maintaining work spaces in Somerville to submit work for a group exhibit that brings together familiars of all kinds and narrates stories filled with darkness and magic. If ghosts and goblins, witches and fortune tellers, Tarot cards and tea leaf readings are part of your work, we want to see it! Work inspired by fairy tales, ghost stories and the lore of Halloween are welcomed. While all 2D and 3D media will be considered, due to space limitations the logistics of very large works cannot be accommodated. Submission Deadline: October 6th
