Gallery A3 -8th Annual Juried Show
 Gallery A3 is excited to announce a CALL for ARTISTS for its Annual Juried Show, to be held August 3-September 2, 2023. The opening reception is on Thursday, August 3, from 5-8 pm and an Art Forum is scheduled for Thursday, August 17 at 7:30 pm. The juror for this year’s exhibition is Amanda Herman. Herman is a multi-media artist and Education Curator of Visual Arts and a professor of art at the University of Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (UMCA) at UMass Amherst.
Gallery A3’s 8th 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) away.
A cooperative, contemporary fine arts gallery in downtown Amherst, Gallery A3 is located in the Cinema Complex.  Current members include painters, sculptors, photographers, print makers, and mixed media artists. During its 21-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. The Art in Community II outreach program is supported in part by grants from the Amherst, Pelham, and Springfield Cultural Councils, all local agencies, which are supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
