Call for Artists: Drawing from Live Models

Drawing from Live Models

November 4 – December 2, 2022
Application Deadline: Thursday, October 13, 2022

Throughout the ages, the human figure has been a source of artistic inspiration. The body’s complex shapes and movements offer many options for creative expression; and the resulting artwork has ranged in style from highly detailed and realistic to loose and abstract.

The Mt. Airy Art Garage (MAAG) is holding an open call for artists to submit artwork for the exhibition, “Drawing from Live Models.” This is a juried exhibition held in partnership with MAAG’s Life Drawing Club, and we invite artists associated with other art centers in the Philadelphia region. Whether you’re enrolled in figure drawing classes or have joined a life drawing club, MAAG invites you to submit artwork that conveys your unique vision when inspired by the human form drawn from a live model.

Drawings in a variety of mediums, styles, and execution will be accepted. Artists may submit up to two (2) pieces of art to be on display and for sale in this upcoming exhibition. All work must be framed and ready to hang. The exhibition runs November 4 – December 2, 2022, in the Solomon Levy Gallery at 7054 Germantown Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19119
