The BAC invites Brookline artists of all media to submit work for PRISM, the inaugural exhibition for Beacon Street Gallery. Color and the creation of art have been intricately linked since the very first instances of art making. Over time, the connotations surrounding each color have become more complex, situational, and culture-specific. For this exhibition, we are looking for art that explores bold, vibrant, and distinctive treatments of color to communicate unique artistic visions. Beacon Street Gallery, located at 1351 Beacon Street, is a curatorial project of the Brookline Arts Center (BAC). The BAC’s Gallery Committee consisting of regional artists and art professionals will select artwork for this exhibition.

All artists residing or working in Brookline are eligible to submit work. All applications must be entered online through the BAC’s submission form. Up to three pieces of original artwork can be submitted.
