Call for Entries – Mother May I? A Digital Exhibit

It’s May, spring is in full bloom, and in the U. S., one of the most celebrated holidays is Mother’s Day. We thought you could use a happy distraction from the Coronavirus sickness, restrictions, and depression. What better way than making art. We hope you enjoy this month’s theme: Mother May I?

About the exhibit: 

  • Any artists from anywhere may enter this online art exhibit. Each artist may enter up to 3 pieces of their original artwork.
  • The theme focuses on mothers. Think about:
    • the makings of a good mother,
    • things I love about my mother,
    • motherly advice,
    • favorite mother’s quotes,
    • how mothers set an example,
    • mother figures in your life,
    • and even ways in which “I am becoming my mother”.
