An Arm & A Leg Call for Art

*  Call for Art – An Arm & A Leg

Join Studio 659 for our annual Awareness Exhibit

Amputate. Sever. Truncate. Whatever you call it, sometimes it is necessary to lop off a body part. We lose pieces of ourselves to accidents and diseases, but we survive and adapt. This is a show to celebrate what we can overcome when we aren’t 100%.

Open to artists of all ages, and art in any medium will be considered. Each artist may enter up to three pieces for consideration. All work must be completed within the last 2 years and not have been previously shown at Studio 659. All work should be connected to our theme of amputation and mobility challenges. Members of Studio 659 may submit without fees. Non-members must pay a non-refundable $25 fee to be considered.
