Call for Art: HOME- October 28 to November 19, 2023

Community arts organization, LexArt and LexHAB, a Lexington-based affordable housing organization, collaborate on a joint art exhibition titled “HOME” that links both missions. The juried show will run from October 28 through November 19, 2023 at the Nye Gallery in Lexington, MA. The show is open to artists in New England working in all media.

The exhibit, HOME, will focus on the essential role housing plays in our lives and the importance of affordable housing. Whether it is a physical place or an idea, ‘home’ can mean something different at each stage of life and varies by culture and geography. Housing as shelter is a universal human need that is inaccessible for too many, locally and globally.

A shelter is a need, a house can be a haven, a nest can be empty, a home can be inhabitable: climate change, income inequality, racism, violence, love, community, and family are just a few of the factors that impact our concept of home and our ability to attain and maintain a home. We invite you to reflect on this theme and to submit a work of art that shares your perspective on the notion of ‘home’.


Sarah Morrison is an award-winning artist whose work includes painting, printmaking and collage. She exhibits locally and nationally. Her work is available at 13Forest Gallery in Arlington and CLAY Art and Concept in West Concord. A member of LexArt, Sarah is the Executive Director of LexHAB, an affordable housing organization in Lexington.

Sarah studied Studio Art and English Literature at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, and Syracuse University in Florence, Italy. Her graduate studies at Hunter College School of Social Work in New York City focused on Social Policy and Community Organizing. As a social worker, Sarah concentrates on the overlapping issues of homelessness, poverty, and affordable housing. Her artwork is informed by the transient, temporal beauty of daily life and the interplay between humans, the natural world and our man-made environment, including social and political issues. Her approach to art making is spontaneous, experimental, and experiential. Throughout her career, she has combined the arts with social justice work.
