MAYOR WALSH ANNOUNCES CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS FOR FAY CHANDLER EMERGING ART EXHIBITION AND AWARD
BOSTON - Tuesday, July 18, 2017 - Mayor Martin J. Walsh and the Mayor's Office of Arts and Culture today announced a call for submissions for the third annual Fay Chandler EMERGING Art Exhibition.

Hosted by the Mayor's Office of Arts and Culture, the Fay Chandler EMERGING Art Exhibition will feature original and contemporary works of art created by Boston artists. The art will be displayed at Boston City Hall in the Scollay Square Gallery during the month of September. Artists that live, work or create in the City of Boston are encouraged to submit their work for consideration.  

"The Fay Chandler EMERGING Art Exhibition is one way we can showcase the work of artists who live and work in the city," said Mayor Walsh. "Boston has a deep community of artists and City Hall has become a venue to showcase their work to the public. This is a great opportunity for local artists to elevate their work, and I look forward to seeing the exhibition in September."  

Fay Chandler was a Boston philanthropist and advocate for the arts. As an artist who started her career later in life, she serves as the inspiration for this exhibition and to artists of all ages.

All submissions will be judged by a jury of Boston art professionals and peers. A total of $5,000 in prizes will be awarded in three categories including Best in Show, New Artist and Over 50 Artist. The prizes will be awarded at the Fay Chandler Emerging Artist Reception, scheduled for September 12, 2017 from 6 p.m. - 7 p.m. at Boston City Hall.

The deadline for submissions is August 10, 2017. To be eligible, artists must live, work or create in Boston. All work must have been created within the last three years. Artists must be at least 18 years old and cannot have gallery representation.
