2020 NoBo Art District Group Show

Our 2020 NoBo Art District Group Show promises to be the best one yet. The First Congregational Church is the venue for the show, hosted by the NoBo Art District.

The show will run for 7 weeks, with an opening reception on the evening of Friday, February 7th, 2020. Several performance events are scheduled across those 7 weeks. These will feature NoBo Art District Visual Artists, Theater and Spoken Word performances, music, dance, artist talks and demos.

We hope this show inspires some collaborative works amongst our artists, however it is not limited to collaborative work. Only one piece per artist or per collaboration. Please just submit your best work. 2-D or wall art is limited to a maximum width of 32”.

There is no fee to participate. Artwork may be for sale; all sales handled directly by the artist. All NoBo Art District participants are expected to contribute in some way by hosting, gallery sitting, PR, providing food, help with art drop-off and pick-up, etc. In addition, all artists must provide either food or beverages for the opening reception.

Please let us know if you are interested in participating by Wednesday, Jan. 22, 2020 via email at: NoBoArtMembership@gmail.com
