The Harlow, in partnership with the Capital Area New Mainers Project (CANMP), invites artists to submit work for “A Nation of Immigrants: Home Lost, Home Found” an art exhibition planned at the Harlow at 100 Water Street in Hallowell for November 2018. This is a raw and fraught time in the world as we struggle to respond to the fact that 65 million people have been displaced from their homes. What is the experience of those newly arrived and those who may have come long ago? What is has been gained, what has been lost? What does it mean to be a “Nation of Immigrants”?

Deadline for submissions: October 1, 2018 by 11:59pm.

All media welcome, all ages, all experience levels. Submission are welcome from new Mainers and from those who arrived in previous generations. A series of workshops is planned at the gallery for those interested in a space, materials, and guidance to produce work in the months leading up to the show. Artists may submit to four pieces via email. New Mainers who need assistance can contact CANMP volunteer Brad Kraft at or by phone at (770) 558-5120. Full details are available on the Harlow’s website: [link to full call in English]

Entries will be reviewed and selected by a curatorial committee comprised of volunteers from CANMP and Harlow staff.
