The University of Maine at Farmington Emery Community Arts Center invites artists to submit their work for consideration in the upcoming premiere online exhibition: “Detour.” This unique online exhibition will be on display Thursday, June 25, through Thursday, July 23, according to a news release from April Mulherin, UMF associate director of Media Relations.

All submissions are due by midnight Wednesday, June 17. Artists can submit up to five works. There is no fee to apply to this call.

In the wake of the present global pandemic, we live in a communal moment of deviation. This exhibition seeks artworks of all media that explore themes of diversion, deviation, disruption, transformation and/or regeneration.

All selected works will be exhibited online on the Emery website, and promoted through its social media. In addition to its life online, a printed catalogue of the exhibit will be available at a future date.

While the UMF campus arts venue remains closed, Emery Community Arts Center strives to continue its role as a space to honor, exhibit and support the artistic and creative force in our local community and beyond. Emery looks forward to launching new exhibitions and arts programming online through its website and social media.
