Open Calls for Visual Artists

The Unfinished Art Project

A juried exhibition of contemporary art in various media. Accepting work that is incomplete and/or unpolished based on the artist’s definition in an effort to bring awareness to the impact of mental health on the creative process.

The Unfinished Art Project will be in collaboration with the Maine Chapter of the NationalAlliance of Mental Illness (NAMI) and funded by the Maine Arts Commission. The exhibition intends on showcasing unfinished work as a means of talking about barriers to productivity and breaking down stigmas of laziness that are often associated with mental health.

All artists featured in the show will receive $100 honorarium.

Two-dimensional or wall mounted art is preferred. This exhibition will coincide with the mental health awareness programming organized by Mayo Street Arts (MSA) in June of 2023.

Application Deadline: Friday, March 10, 2023

Date of exhibition: May 5 – June 2023
