Updated: A Call to Artists - The Art of Music

Please Note: This Exhibit was originally scheduled to open in April, 2020, but its schedule has been adjusted due to the current COVID-19 emergency. The health and well-being of our community of artists, visitors, local residents, volunteers and staff members is of the utmost importance to us. As a result, the timeline for delivery of artwork, installing the show and the opening reception may need to be adjusted based on federal, state and local guidelines in place at that time. We thank you for your support and understanding during this challenging time.

“Everything in the universe has a rhythm, everything dances.” – Maya Angelou

“Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, a charm to sadness, gaiety and life to everything; It is the essence of order and lends to all that is good, just, and beautiful.” – Plato

Artists, instrument makers, musicians, and all other community members, the Floyd Center for the Arts invites you to submit your work to be considered for inclusion in The Art of Music Exhibit in the Hayloft Gallery, opening in July 2020. Applications are due by Friday, June 12, 2020.

It is no secret that Floyd county and its surrounding area is rich in creativity and that it’s particularly rich with visual art and music. With such a wealth of visual artists, luthiers, and makers of all kinds, as well as songwriters, musicians and lovers of all things music, we decided to bring all of this creative energy together in one exhibit in celebration of our area’s musical and visual art riches. For this exhibit, we ask you to share your interpretation of The Art of Music. This might be an instrument you made, a painting depicting a musical scene, a photograph of a beloved heirloom instrument, a mixed media piece about what music looks like to you, or even an audio/video installation, or, maybe it is something completely different. Whatever your interpretation and whatever your medium(s), we want to share it with the entire community! All media welcome. This exhibit will open on July 2, 2020. The deadline to apply is Friday, June 12, 2020.

Visit to apply on line, call 540-745-2784, or email Artist will submit digital images. The Center’s Gallery Committee will review and select entries for the exhibition.

A “People’s Choice” award of $50 will be awarded. Visitors to the Center will be invited to vote for their favorite piece. The winner will be announced after the end of the exhibit.
