Deadline: July 16, 2017 – CALL FOR ART: Handled

Gallery 263 seeks art that’s been made by hands for an exhibition celebrating the unrefined, imperfect, and utterly human artworks of today. As digitization, mass production, and commercial manufacturing abound, we invite those artists who choose to embrace the tools they were born with to apply to this juried exhibition. Submit your handmade objects; imperfections, charm, and all.

Open to New England (CT, MA, ME, NH, RI, VT) + New York & New Jersey artists of all career stages. Open to all visual and performance media (2D, 3D, time based). While time-based media are accepted, they should directly relate to the theme in some way. See below for size restrictions and further details.
