SAC and the Inside-OUT Gallery Call to SOS Artists Members’ showcase exhibit for April & May 2021
Submission deadline April 3

The Somerville Arts Council’s Inside-OUT Gallery seeks works that showcases the breadth of talent of our creative community.

What a year this has been! One of the shining moments throughout this ordeal has been the beckon of light which is the arts and the creative community. As a perennial favorite, Somerville Open Studios has been dedicated to bringing art to the masses for decades. While this year’s event will not have the traditional fanfare, it will include various ways artists can showcase their work--one of which will be a members’ showcase at the Inside-OUT Gallery in Davis Square.

This year, Somerville Open Studios, the Somerville Arts Council and the Inside-OUT Gallery once again welcome seasoned members and newcomers alike to submit pieces for this annual show. For years, this exhibit has been a popular highlight and a great way for SOS artists to connect with the art collecting public. All works will be considered. Share your style and your technique in this highly visible art show, on view from April 20-May 16. Download submission guidelines here
