APRIL 2019



42 Maple is celebrating its 5th anniversary with the return of Burlesque!  We are now accepting submissions from visual artists of all mediums. PEEP SHOW challenges artists to place viewers in the active role of voyeur. Artwork should in some way force direct physical viewer interaction, whether through lifting, moving or in some way adjusting an element of artwork in order to better view the piece. This can be achieved by lifting a blind, pushing a button, or any other means seen fit by the artist. Subject matter can be sassy and/or tongue in cheek. Please note: vulgar pieces will not be installed.

ARTWORK DELIVERY DEADLINE: All works should be delivered to our gallery no later than 7pm – Monday, April 1st
OPENING RECEPTION: Friday, April 5th (with live performances by Lady Luck Burlesque)
END OF SHOW: Artwork can be picked up on or after Tuesday, April 30th.
