Centennial Public Art Gallery at the Musculoskeletal Center, located in Peabody Massachusetts, will be hosting our All Member Exhibition this year.  A community art gallery for more than 10 years, it is located in a medical office building that services thousands of people a week, and offers local artists an opportunity to have exposure in a unique public setting. Artists are welcome to sell their work, with no commissions paid to the gallery.Every member who submits will have at least one piece in the show. The only constraint to all pieces being displayed is the constraints of the space.
For this exhibition, we are doing something new!!!
All NEMS members who submit work for this show will determine the prize winners through the website.  Submitting members will be able to see all submitted works by July 21, and will have until August 5th to vote for their 5 favorite pieces. Members will not see the names of each artist, only the photos of work and the artists’ statements. First through fifth place winners will be announced at the reception on August 14th, 2022 at the gallery.  
(We strongly encourage submitting members to vote for work other than their own.)
Awards for each winner will be:  $300 for First Place$100 each for 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th place
Due to the constraints of the gallery’s hanging system, the entries have to be two dimensional and weigh less than 45 pounds.  No three dimensional free standing works will be accepted due to the large number of visitors in the space. Work must be made within the past 3 years and have not been exhibited in any previous NEMS shows.  
Submission attachments must be .jpeg file and under 4mb and a maximum of 4800px on the longest sideSubmission attachments are permanently resized into 3 separate sizes (regardless of the original size): 100px, 1080px, maximum saved dimension setting (1920px by default)
(If you have submitted a work in the past that was not chosen for a NEMS exhibition, you can submit that piece for this exhibition. If your piece has only been exhibited virtually, it may also be submitted).  Artists may submit up to 3 pieces for consideration.
