CALL TO ARTISTS
January 15, 2022 - April 1, 2022
Sculpture Boothbay is pleased to announce an open call for artists to submit proposals for artwork to be included on the Boothbay Region Sculpture Trail for the 2022 season. Artists selected will receive a $200 honorarium and support with siting and installation. It is incumbent upon the artists to arrange transportation of the work to the Boothbay Region.
The sculpture trail is located in the Boothbay Region of Midcoast Maine. Established in 2017, the Trail is a public art exhibit installed throughout the Boothbay peninsula that can be experienced on foot or by car. The collection includes work by artists from around the world, with a focus on those living and working in the state Maine.
All works on exhibit are available for sale.
Sculpture Boothbay is a 501c(3) non-profit organization that promotes, exhibits, and educates visitors and students on the art and practice of sculpture, sculpting, and art-making. Sculpture Boothbay works with partner organizations to host the Maine Stone Symposium, the Boothbay Region Sculpture Trail, the Point of View and Ocean Point Auctions. For more information, please visit the contact page on our site.
Please keep in mind that this is an OUTDOOR sculpture trail. While the organization will provide general maintenance to the trail and the sculptures, the work will be sited outside and uncovered year-round.
Proposals are due April 1, 2022.
Sculpture Boothbay Board members and a select advisory committee of community members will conduct a review of proposals. Selected artists will be notified by May 1.
Selected sculptures must arrive by June 15, 2022.
Each artist may submit up to three (3) sculptures for consideration.
To complete your application, you will be asked for:
Artist statement (up to 200 words)
1-3 Images per sculpture (JPEGs, each under 5MB)
Artwork dimensions including approximate weight
