CALL FOR ENTRY: Have your work noticed and purchased by local buyers & collectors, just in time for the holidays! Maryland Art Place (MAP) is seeking artists for “UNDER $500”, our upcoming winter benefit exhibition & affordable art sale. The exhibition will include approximately 1-3 works by each selected artist (scale dependant – in the case of smaller works more than 3 pieces may be accepted). Each individual piece must retail for $500 or less.

UNDER $500 is MAP’s winter benefit. Proceeds from the sale of artwork will be split 50/50 between Maryland Art Place and the artist. The event is ticketed ($25) however participating artists are welcomed free of charge.

UNDER $500 is a hybrid, physical and virtual exhibition event. The physical exhibition opens Friday, November 17th from 6pm-10pm. Artworks may be purchased by patrons and taken off the walls on a first come first served basis that night. All works will be wrapped in brown paper with MAP’s signature holiday bow.

The virtual sale will launch the very next day, Saturday November 18 at 10 am and run through Friday, November 24 , 12 am. The virtual sale will include more artists than the physical sale. *Please note: applications received will be selected for either the virtual sale (featured online) exclusively, or for both the physical (featured in gallery) AND virtual exhibition (featured online). Your acceptance letter will indicate in which capacity your work will be presented.

MAP will maintain gallery hours Saturday, November 18 through Friday, November 24 from noon-4pm for any remaining physical works that may be left for purchase.

AFTER PARTY: On Friday, November 17th, once the sale closes, MAP will open up its basement venue, UNDERBar for a post-event party, Ticket holders and artists have access to both the sales event and party. Guests can expect light fare, open bar, our fabulous drag queens and music! This year's theme? WINTER WONDERLAND!
