One of the effective ways to publicize my art, as well as to get feedback on it, is to answer "calls for art." Paintings are submitted to accomplished art judges, and a determination is made to either accept or not invite the work to be included in the show or for display in the gallery. Many (probably most!) of the shows during the past year have been virtual and online exhibitions only due to coronavirus protocols, but recently more galleries and museums are opening to the public again. The ones listed here are ones that I have had paintings both online and in galleries, and I am most grateful for the opportunities and critiques I have gotten by taking part. I will keep this page updated for activity at galleries or in virtual exhibitions. Enjoy the art! --GBM
