Brush Coat Cover is the 4th biennial held at the Beard and Weil Galleries at Wheaton College in Norton, Massachusetts. This year we invite artists whose work challenges, explores, and celebrates the definition and history of painting as an artistic medium. We are seeking a diverse range of experimental work, collectively evoking an open-ended conversation on painting. The Beard and Weil Galleries are a vital part of Wheaton’s creative and intellectual life. Exhibitions feature work by contemporary artists in all media, as well as works from Wheaton’s extensive Permanent Collection, spanning Ancient Greece to contemporary South Africa. The mission of the Beard and Weil Galleries is to provide cultural exhibitions and programs of contemporary and historical significance with a commitment to scholarship, creativity, and inclusion. Artist submissions will also be considered for future group shows, solo shows, and visiting artist programs at Wheaton College.
The deadline for submission is December 3rd, for more information click here.
