Paperworks 2021 Artist Benefits

There are small cash awards for first, second, and third place. Because Paperworks 2021 is online, the potential exists for viewers to see the art from wherever in the world the internet is available.  Winners will have up to six pieces included in a one-month, online exhibition on bj spoke galley’s website in August 2021. Work will be promoted on the gallery’s social media accounts. There will be a Zoom reception for the event which will accomodate large numbers of registrants.

About bj spoke gallery

bj spoke gallery is a cooperative gallery which has a steadfast membership of artists working in a broad range of media and styles. They are a not-for-profit with a mission of community outreach and education. Ordinarily (in pre-covid times), shows are undertaken with the dual purposes of staying alive financially and bringing the excellent work of national artists into the community. The times being uncertain, the gallery has turned to the online show and zoom reception as ways to continue traditions. While they are saddened not to see the work in person, they realize that the online venue permits work of larger sizes than would fit in their physical gallery. The artists can submit without considering shipping fees or customs requirements.
