New England veterans, current military personnel, and their immediate family members, regardless of artistic background and experience, are invited to submit their work by July 22nd, 2024. WORK_SPACE welcomes a variety of mediums, including but not limited to painting, sculpture, photography, mixed media, poetry, and performance.

Artists can create their own video, or Workspace can conduct and record a Zoom call where the artist is interviewed about their work. Their goal is to showcase artistic friends and spark creativity in their audience. If interested, you can email the gallery for details. See the flyer. Enjoy the past videos
