Call for Art: 2024 SOS 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. This year the 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 Bakery, 626 Somerville Avenue, April 12 through May 20, 2024.

All who have volunteered within the last two years are invited to submit a piece for this exhibit. All mediums will be considered, but the dimensions may not exceed 14”x14”  and must be able to hang from the wall.  This is a great way to put your small works in front of a buying public.

This is a closed call for people who have volunteered in the last few years. 

Applicants’ work must be available from April 9 – May 21.

  1. Artist name & Contact Info (phone & e-mail)
