Description

Gallery A3 -7th Annual Juried ShowAfter a two-year hiatus due to the coronavirus, Gallery A3 is excited to announce a CALL for ARTISTS for its Annual Juried Show, to be held August 5-27, 2022. The opening reception is on Thursday, August 4, from 5-8 pm and an Art Forum is scheduled for Thursday, August 18, at 7:30 pm. The juror for this year’s exhibition is Daniel Kojo Schrade, professor of art at Hampshire College, in Amherst, Massachusetts.
Gallery A3’s 7th Annual Juried Show offers local and regional artists an opportunity to exhibit their work in an active downtown gallery and, in turn, gives the community a chance to discover artists who may be living just across town or several towns (or states) distant.
A cooperative, contemporary fine arts gallery in downtown Amherst, Gallery A3 is located in the Cinema Complex.  Current members include painters, sculptors, photographers, printmakers, and mixed media artists. During its 20-year history, A3 has been home to over 60 artists, mounting monthly exhibits and offering cultural events and community collaborations. The Gallery’s opening receptions take place on the first Thursday of every month; Art Forums, free and open to the public, are scheduled on the third Thursday.
