Artability Show Virtual Edition – Online Entry Form 2021

2021 Artability Show Goes Virtual

We’ve contemplated new ways to share artist stories and artwork and we’ve made the decision to move the 2021 Artability Show to a virtual format to protect the health and safety of our communities. The show will premiere on November 5, 2021, on our Facebook and YouTube channels, and our website. 

The 2021 Artability Show Virtual Edition hopes to reflect on the events of the last year and how art, thoughtful conversations and coming together as a community can help us continue to heal, learn and grow.

Deadline to Submit Your Entries Online Extended to October 12, 2021

Any adult 18 years of age or older who experiences barriers to mental wellness can participate in our 2021 Artability Show Virtual Edition.

We’re excited to feature your visual artwork, writing pieces and celebrate your story – we’re just doing it in a different way this year.

Our entry form (below) is online-only this year. While you won’t be entering your artwork for sale, we ask that you submit photos of your art for a virtual showcase on our website, social media, and during the show.

You will also have a chance to upload your writing, which will be featured in a virtual e-book.

Visual Art Entries

Submit up to five photos of your art within these mediums: painting, sculpture, graphic works, photography, or mixed media.

Writing Entries

Submit up to three, short writing pieces within these genres: fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and music lyrics.

If you have questions about the show and submission process, email artability@peopleincoporated.org

Thank you for participating in our 2021 Artability Show Virtual Edition!
