“Call it the Blues” exhibit
Deadline: May 16, 2012. As part of the Tinner Hill Blues Festival, the Tinner Hill Heritage Foundation is participating in FIRSTfriday of Falls Church by hosting a juried all-media exhibition, entitled “Call It the Blues” at Art and Frame of Falls Church. The exhibition will focus on the meaning of the “blues” from an artist’s or visual perspective. Works of art may explore the nature of blues music, poetry, literature, or history; interpret or reflect the emotions and events inspiring or evoked by the “blues”; focus on blues performers; or the submitted work may explore the “hue of blue” (perhaps, for example, paying homage to the “blue” periods of such artists as Picasso, Degas, Tanner, Bearden, Lawrence, or O’Keefe). Details are here.

Deadline: June 10, 2012. Herndon ArtSpace invites all artists over 16 to submit artwork for a show honoring Margaret’s Garden, an iris garden kept by Margaret Thomas on Lawyers Road in Herndon. Artwork must pertain to the garden. Details are here.
