This Dec. 2 and 3, the Cumberland Museum and Archives will present a special art event inspired by the physical and cultural landscape of the village of Cumberland.
Cumberland as Muse is a multi-media art show featuring paintings, sculpture, photographs, short films, art cards and more, all inspired by the people, places, stories and impressions of Cumberland.
Organizers are putting out the final call to local artists to come and be part of the show, and the final deadline to participate is Nov. 15.
Cumberland as Muse is both a celebration of village life and an important fundraiser for the Cumberland Museum.
Exhibitors can have a full exhibit space or be part of the Community Exhibit Area.
Whether you have one piece or 10, your are welcome to apply to be part of the show. Exhibitors agree to a flat fee or to share a percentage of sales with the Museum.
The Cumberland Museum will also pull photos and paintings from the collection to be viewed for the first time in years.
From old pictures of Cumberland’s Chinatown to photos of the Big Time Out and everything in between, this show is sure to be an incredible journey though the Cumberland landscape.
Space is limited, and it is likely there will not be room for all submissions.
