Call For Entries


Don’t think about making art, just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it’s good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art.” – Andy Warhol


Call for Artists: “Somerville Perspectives”

Dear Artist,

This year’s Arts on Division Festival will be held September 15 – 18, coinciding with the annual JazzFest.

As part of the event, AOD will hold a special exhibit “Somerville Perspectives”. Artists are invited to enter artwork expressing any facet of Somerville life- the diverse population, interesting architecture, downtown, parks, town events, historic sites, – any part of the community that has a particular meaning for you.

We are delighted that Gallery on Main has generously offered their gallery to host our exhibit. The exhibit will run through the Festival weekend and continue for another two weeks, through October 1.

As space is somewhat limited, we are accepting hanging works that are no larger than 12 x 18 inches, framed.



  1. One piece of work per submission, no larger than 12 x 18 inches, framed and ready to hang, from each artist. All types of media are acceptable- paintings, drawings, prints, collage, photographs. Artists may submit a print of their original work. Prints for the portfolio bin will also be accepted, no larger than 12 x 18 inches.
  2. Deadline to submit artwork is September 1. However, we strongly recommend not waiting until the last minute, as space is limited.
  3. A reception will be held at Gallery on Main, 30 W. Main St., Somerville, Thursday, September 15 from 6:00 to 8:00 pm.
  4. A 40% commission on sales will be paid to Arts on Division.
