This year we are excited to host our third annual Fay Chandler Emerging Artist Awards. We are looking for fresh, original contemporary work. The Art will be displayed at Boston City Hall in the Scollay Square Gallery during the month of September 2017. The art submitted will be judged by a jury of Boston art professionals and peers. $5,000 in prizes will be awarded in three categories and it will be a great chance to get your art seen by the Boston arts community. 

Fay Chandler was a champion and advocate of the arts and started her career as an artist later in life . She serves as an inspiration for this exhibition and to artists of all ages.
