National & Beyond

Call For Entries: National Juried Exhibit Deadline 10/30

The Route Towards Equity.

Inequality has been so pervasive, it has generated so much suffering, disadvantage and injustice, that equality can no longer be the goal. Humanity has now reached a point where we all need to strive for equity and guarantee that there is no disparity in the opportunities some are afforded over others. Only by “leveling the playing field,” by allowing everyone access to education, housing, health care and decent salaries, will we be able to survive as a fair, productive and -yes- egalitarian society.

The exhibit is open to all visual mediums.

About the Gallery:

The Cade Center for Fine Arts Gallery is on the western side of AACC’s Arnold campus, 101 College Parkway.  Located on the main floor of the Cade building on West Campus, The Cade Art Gallery at Anne Arundel Community College features seven exhibits a year. The span of exhibiting artists is broad, yet each exhibit is focused by theme or medium. You can encounter an installation project juried by a museum curator, or the latest painting by an AACC student. Since March 2020 the Cade Gallery Instagram account, @cadegalleryaacc has supported the galleries mission with  content throughout the year.

The maximum amount of this grant is $15,000; an award of $5,000 is typical.

To be eligible for this program, an artist must be able to demonstrate a minimum involvement of ten years in a mature phase of his or her work. Artists must work in the disciplines of painting, sculpture or printmaking. Each application will be reviewed by the Directors, who will exercise their discretion in considering it, and will determine the amount of each award. Applicants should note there is a set amount appropriated for these grants each fiscal year; once this budgetary limit has been reached, the Foundation will not be able to judge any additional requests on their merits.
