Call for Art

Waltham Mills Artists Association is accepting entries for our small works show, Creative Exchange, at the Lincoln Arts Project gallery in Waltham. In this exhibit the art will not be for sale, but all participating artists will trade and come home with new original art. The Creative Exchange is both an exhibit and an exchange as it allows artists to share their own work and, during the closing party, trade their piece with another artist from the show. During this time of uncertainty, this swap of artistic generosity provides artists with the opportunity to be appreciated while also appreciating the work of their peers. 


How will the art exchange work?

As artists drop off their artwork, they will be given a number. During the Closing Party, each artist will choose something from the exhibit to take home. 



-Creative Exchange is free and open to all artists and those from Waltham are strongly encouraged to apply. Artists must be 21 to enter.

-The maximum size for 2-dimensional work must not exceed 12 inches in any direction and 8 inches square for sculpture. 

-Artwork does not need to be framed. However, artists must include hanging materials for unframed pieces. 

-You may submit multiple pieces for consideration, but only one will be selected. 

-All styles of art are welcome.


Deadline for submissions is Monday August 5, 2022 but artists are encouraged to submit work as soon as possible.


Notification for acceptance is Wednesday August 10, 2022

Drop off date for accepted artwork is Thursday September 15th 

Closing night party is Thursday October 13th, 2022 at the LAP gallery from 7 pm-9 pm, free and open to the public
