Call for Art: 2023 Volunteer Small Works Show

For all the folks who work throughout the year to make SOS a reality, this is your chance to exhibit one of your pieces in the Annual Volunteer Show. The SOS 2023 Volunteer Show will be a Small Works exhibit, where your work illustrates the idea that a piece of art may be small in scale, but compelling in impact! 

The Volunteer Small Works Show will be on display at the Forge Baking Company, 626 Somerville Avenue, April 12 through May 14.

All SOS members who have volunteered within the last three years are invited to submit a piece for this exhibit. All mediums will be considered, but the dimensions may not exceed 12”x12”. This is a great way to put your small works in front of a buying public. 

This is a closed call for SOS members who have volunteered in the last three years.
