The Marietta Cobb Museum of Art is calling all artists to submit for Metro Montage XX. The submission deadline is April 17. Metro Montage is the Marietta Cobb Museum of Art’s 20th annual juried exhibition, featuring all types of genre, medium, style, subject matter, concept and technique in art. Metro Montage XX will feature works of fine art by contemporary artists that showcase the diversity and skill within our nation’s culture. An anonymous panel will select works of art from over 500 submissions. Because this is the 20th Anniversary of Metro Montage, MCMA will celebrate by utilizing all galleries in the museum for the exhibition, allowing for more pieces of art than in years past!

Selected artwork will be exhibited at MCMA July 11 through Sept. 6.

MCMA Curator Madeline Beck, will lead an anonymous committee of jurors to judge this year’s Metro Montage. Beck has been working with the MCMA staff since 2015 and was curatorial assistant for the Zuckerman Museum of Art. She graduated summa cum laude from Kennesaw State University with a bachelor of arts in art history. Beck has judged numerous exhibitions in Atlanta, presented undergraduate research at conferences across the region and has been published in three academic journals.
