Real or Imagined

A National Juried Exhibition

Attleboro Arts Museum – 2021

Real or imagined?  One might wonder these days.  These challenging times are complicated, unfamiliar and defying our norms. 

As we make our way forward, the Attleboro Arts Museum invites artists throughout the US to submit works of original art in any medium, size or concept that respond to the theme of Real or Imagined. For instance, artists can reflect on the nature or quality of this moment, spotlight the authentic, explore the unreal or depict items that contain some/all of the above. 

Consider a representational still life or a surrealist scene … the phenomenon of phantom pain … AstroTurf landscapes …
