Ends on

3S Artspace and Black Heritage Trail New Hampshire announce an open call for visual artwork.  Together, we invite emerging BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) visual artists located in New England to submit up to five pieces for consideration.  

Selected pieces will result in a group exhibition entitled Vision and Visibility to be shown in the main gallery at 3S Artspace alongside a solo exhibit of works by renowned artist Daniel Minter.  Both exhibitions will also be available for viewing through a virtual 3D tour, and work will be sold online and in-person through the 3S website.  Artists retain 60% commission.

We encourage artists to submit recent work and will consider exhibiting new work (not yet created) as long as the images provided relate to the style of the new work.

There is no submission fee for this opportunity.  

A review committee will carefully consider all submissions received. The review committee will include representatives from 3S Artspace and Black Heritage Trail New Hampshire, as well as established BIPOC artists.

Submission Deadline: Monday, August 9, 2021

Notification:  No later than September 10, 2021

Exhibit Dates: November 19, 2021- January 2, 2022

About The Gallery @ 3S Artspace

Each year, the Gallery presents a diverse representation of contemporary visual artists.  Exhibitions highlight unprecedented innovation across disciplines, celebrate artistic excellence, encourage lively discourse, and foster an unwavering appreciation for the vital role that art plays in our community.

3S Artspace is located in historic Portsmouth NH, a Seacoast community known for its historic downtown, local music and arts scene, thriving restaurant scene, and diverse tourist attractions.

The Gallery at 3S Artspace is located in a venue that is also home to a performing arts venue and popular restaurant.  Together, we welcomed over 50,000 guests each year (pre-pandemic).  Gallery hours are currently Thursday - Sunday, but we hope to return to Tuesday-Sunday if restrictions are further lifted this fall.   Hours are extended during evenings when there are performances in the venue, as we enthusiastically encourage all visitors and audience members to experience the Gallery.

3S Artspace is a member of Art 'Round Town, (a monthly first Friday art walk).  We provide a cash bar and light refreshments during artist openings and Art 'Round Town events.

3S also hosts a Lobby Gallery and artisan retail space.
