Compass calls to artists for juried exhibit, “Winter as Prism or Prison”

BRANDON — The Compass Music and Arts Center is accepting submissions for the “Winter as Prism or Prison” juried exhibit. The exhibit runs from Jan. 15 through March 26 with a submission deadline of Dec. 4.

Especially here in New England, winter can be a long, cold endeavor that some find to be a magical time full of fun and striking ever-changing light, while others hunker down and pass the months indoors, waiting for the first signs of spring. How do you view winter: as a beautiful prism of light or a prison of epic proportions?

Submissions will be considered by notable Vermont artists Wendy Copp, Maurie Harrington and Mary Fran Lloyd, and judged based on the submitting artist’s interpretation of the “Winter as Prism or Prison” theme. A cash prize will be awarded, along with future exhibiting opportunities at Compass.

The submission materials and payment must be received by Dec. 4. The submission guidelines are available at or via
