Public Invited to Contribute to the Conceal/Reveal Mask Installation

All Rhode Islanders are invited to submit their most creative interpretations of face masks for an installation in the Art Club’s highly visible Dodge House Gallery on Thomas Street. This is an opportunity for our community to celebrate art and encourage our neighbors to wear masks but also to find hope in creativity during this difficult time. Three top prizes will be awarded! Please read this call in full for all the details below

Making your own mask
Make it in whatever medium you choose. Want to do an oil or acrylic painted mask? Use our template to cut out a piece of canvas. The same goes for watercolor or pastel paper. If your media is best protected with fixative, please do that. Got another idea for a whole different medium? Again, your imagination is the limit. Want to adorn your mask with a Groucho nose or alien antenna? Go for it, as long as it doesn’t exceed the above size and weight limits. Digital images of personal artwork or even a favorite family photo can be used as well. Creators of all ages are welcome.

Three non-monetary awards will be offered (Best in Show, 2nd Place, 3rd Place). Winning masks will be printed and available for sale, with all proceeds going to the Artist Relief Fund. Each winning artist will receive a free printed version of their mask, too! Awards will be decided by online voting, more details will be available soon.

Please read the call for entry in full for all the details and contact Gallery Manager Michael Rose at with any questions.
