2021 ISLAND ART & SOUL CALENDAR

We are working vigorously to publish the 2021 calendar and are excited to do so! The calendar reaches up to 2000 sold each year and is featured in Undercover Books and Adorn.  It is also distributed widely via our generous calendar sponsors. 

The museum has a long history of supporting St. Croix’s youth. During this time of crisis, we are grateful to have your support of the Museum. It is because of our passionate, dedicated, and generous community of Artists that we can do what we do. Thanks to you we can support our community when they need it most.

The calendar has historically featured fine artists working in 2D and more specifically watercolor and other painting mediums. Last year, we featured Photography from our local photographers. This year, we would like to feature a combination of all 2D mediums including paintings, drawing, collage, digital mediums, etc. as well as photography depicting our Caribbean Culture.

  

CMCArts is inviting you to submit up to 4 images but no less than 2 for jury selection in this year’s calendar.  Deadline for submission is 8/15/20. The following information is required: CV, Resume and an Artist’s Statement, Dimensions, (horizontal paintings or photographs work best) medium, date completed, whether owned by a “private collector”, or available for purchase, and the price. Include your email address and website, which will be included in the Bio. Several featured artists have received commissions because of appearing in the Island Art & Soul. 

The Calendar print size is 10.5” x 13”

A jury panel will select 13 images to be printed in the calendar along with a very short 1-2 sentence bio. No more than one image per artist will be selected for print. 

The calendar has 13 image opportunities that coincide with each month of the year as well as the cover and January of 2022.   Please keep the submissions family friendly.
