Call for Artists 
Call for Artists - 2016 and 2017 exhibition proposals

Get your original artwork into Studio 550’s gallery
 MANCHESTER, NH- Studio 550 is announcing 2016 Calls for Entries, and
an invitation to area artists to submit exhibition proposals for 2017.

New from Studio 550 Art Center, 550 Elm Street, Manchester, NH
Call for Pop Ups & Exhibition Proposals (No deadline, ongoing as space allows): We have worked in small gaps in between our 2016 exhibits to give local artists and students the opportunity to organize a short 2-5 day exhibit. If any artists are interested in submitting their work for consideration, or if any artists have an exhibit idea, please ask them to contact us and we can get them dates. If an artist would like a longer exhibit, we can schedule them into 2017.

Live Model Figure Drawing Workshops:  Not a gallery opportunity, but a good artist opportunity. We will host a monthly figure drawing workshop every first Saturday from 6-8:30pm. We will try to alternate male and female models each month. More information can be found here.

New England Art Reach
I am so excited to announce that New England Art Reach has officially partnered with Hallmark Health Medical Associates in Massachusetts! There will be three art rotations per year for their Melrose and Medford locations.
Thank you!

Healing with Art
The Friends of Norris Cotton Cancer Center has issued a call for art for an exhibit to be hung in the Norris Cotton Cancer Centers in Lebanon, Manchester, and Nashua. The exhibit is based on the belief that art contributes to and reinforces the healing process for patients who have been diagnosed with and are receiving treatment for cancer. Art provides a therapeutic refuge for those in need of finding perspective on what is happening in their lives, and this exhibit is intended to offer enlightenment and encouragement to patients, families, and staff of the Cancer Centers. This exhibit will be hung for four months at the Centers.

For further information and to submit an application, go to:
