The Amador County Arts Council, in partnership with the Amador County Suicide Prevention Coalition, is proud to announce HEART OF HOPE —An art show celebrating the hope, perseverance, and awareness of mental health challenges. Amador County Arts Council is holding an OPEN CALL for submissions to HEART OF HOPE. Submissions are open to all ages, all art modalities, amateur to professional from anywhere. Whether entering work to express your own experiences, or to show support for others, contributing artists will bring our community together in a new and profound way.

HEART OF HOPE will run September 4th through October 15th. A special reception with performances will take place during National Suicide Awareness Week on Friday, September 13th from 4-7pm. Entries for the exhibit, only one per person, should highlight the hope, perseverance, and awareness of mental health challenges, and they may be for sale directly by the artist.  Works must be ready to hang, with resources available for those in need of assistance.

 There is no fee to enter, but please register your intent to enter by July 31. The delivery deadline for those needing assistance in preparing work for exhibition is August 15. Otherwise, the deadline to receive work at AmadorArts in Jackson is by August 30th.  Please pick up your work at the end of the show by October 18, or if outside the area, include packaging for return of your work by U.S. Postal Service and a check to AmadorArts for $15 for shipping.  

This show is made possible by the Amador County Department of Behavioral Health Mental Health Services Act Reversion Fund, the Amador County Arts Council, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the California Arts Council, a state agency.
