 For Baton Rouge, 2016 has proven to be a very difficult year. We have had shootings which have emphasized the racial tensions that mark out times. We have had record breaking floods that left people homeless, in tenuous situations, without their possessions or certainty of the future of their homes. On top of that, we are living through an election season that is causing tension in our town, state and country.


Artists through the ages have used their media to offer both veiled and overt social commentary. We are giving visual artists an opportunity to show how they are responding to the events of 2016. This is an opportunity to provide a forum for thought-provoking and insightful work.


Kelwood Contemporary Art will be hosting the juried show, “Reflections on 2016”, an art exhibit for visual artists to respond to the events of 2016. We will accept entries in all media, but anything requiring digital or electronic presentation will need electronics to be supplied by the artist. Entry fee of $30. Entry Deadline January 27, 2017. Show dates- March 2-April 15, 2017.
