The Mattatuck Museum’s annual MIXMASTER is an exhibition that seeks to discover and recognize the talents of the Museum’s artists members working in New England and the Tri-state region. Initiated to support and recognize contemporary art, MIXMASTER provides an opportunity for established and emerging artists to debut their most recent work, done in the last three years.
MIXMASTER is open to all Connecticut, Maine, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Vermont resident artists 18 years and over. Original works accepted in all media. Work submitted must have been executed in the past three years and not previously exhibited in a Connecticut Museum. A $20.00 entry fee will be charged for each submitted work. Up to three works per artist may be submitted. All entrants must have a current Mattatuck Museum membership to be eligible to submit work. Artists can learn more about Mixmaster at the Museum’s website, mattmuseum.org, and submit entries on artcall.org. Deadline for submissions is Friday, December 17, 2021.
Submissions will be judged this year by Kyle Harris, Director at Peter Blum Gallery in NYC. Kyle Harris has been Director at Peter Blum Gallery in New York since 2019. Previously he was the Director of Susan Sheehan Gallery in New York and the Gallery Associate of Holden Luntz Gallery in Palm Beach.
