Call for Art “A Plea To The Nine Muses” 

curated by Jeannie Dale 

About Curator : Dale is the Gallery Director and Curator at Leica Gallery Boston. She holds dual BFA’s in Art History and Painting. Former VA at the Institute of Contemporary Art. Co-curated “un(veiled)” for Behind VA Shadows.

From Curator Jeannie Dale:

A Plea To The Nine Muses Your favorite person, a butterfly at your window, the color green, a dream you had in middle school. An artist’s muse is a gravitational force that inspires one to create. In Ancient Greek mythology, the Nine Muses are Goddesses who preside over literature, the arts, and the sciences. To write poetry, paint, or theorize was to embody this source of divine knowledge. In this exhibition, we are seeking art that pays homage to your muse(s). A piece of art that feels as though it came directly from your source inspiration, your innate creativity. A piece of art that demanded to be made.
