Applications for Peterborough sculpture exhibition due June 15

Published: 06-12-2024 8:00 AM

The Peterborough Night Market, organized by MAXT Makerspace, is hosting a sculpture exhibition in downtown Peterborough, and the deadline for the application is 11:59 p.m. June 15. 

The group is looking for up to 10 sculptures that will be displayed in prominent locations around downtown Peterborough, between Aug. 1 and Oct. 1. The sculptures will also be a highlighted feature of the Peterborough Night Market, which occurs on the evening of Friday, Aug. 9. 

The theme of this year’s market is “The Mixtape.” Artists are encouraged to play with genres, demonstrate unexpected juxtapositions or create something new with what was old. The artist may interpret the theme however they would like, and should submit an explanation with their application. Sculptors of all backgrounds, mediums and experience levels are encouraged to participate, and must be 18 or older.

Applications will be reviewed by a jury of local artisans in the Monadnock region. Those pieces selected will receive a stipend of at least $500 to assist with their installation costs. Interested artists should go to maxtmakerspace.org/peterborough-public-art to review the full details and to submit their applications.

Questions can be directed to MAXT Executive Director Roy Schlieben at roy@maxtmakerspace.org.
