Color is important to every artwork, but for this show, it’s everything. For this juried exhibition, ArtsWorcester is looking for your brightest, boldest, and most explosive artworks. Turn up the heat this summer with blazing vermillion, vivid cobalt, radioactive yellow, or the color(s) of your choice: bold is the way to go.

Go abstract or approach a familiar subject with a bold palette--just make sure it’s vibrant with color. Artworks may feature a spectrum of colors, or have one dominant color. All media are welcome, including but not limited to: traditional media, fine craft, sculpture, new media.

Five hundred dollars in prizes, funded by Marlene and David Persky and the Artist Prize Fund, will be awarded by the panel of jurors. Click here to meet the panel.

This is a juried exhibition, meaning that the panel of three jurors will consider all eligible submissions and select certain artworks to be shown at ArtsWorcester. All Artist Members may submit up to two pieces for consideration.

Please contact with any questions about the call or submission requirements.
