Attention all Northeast Florida artists: Community Hospice is accepting submissions for art, which will be displayed in the public and family areas for the new Community Hospice & Palliative Care Center for Caring at Baptist Medical Center South.

Here’s the deets from Community Hospice & Palliative Care Center for Caring in Jax:

Any medium other than textiles is acceptable as long as it can hang on-wall in corridors and waiting areas. Original works are preferred with no sharp edges. Work does not need to be framed as Community Hospice will handle to keep things consistent with interior standards. A preference is given to regional artists from Northeast Florida communities.

How will the art be chosen? Well, Void’s Arts and Music Columnist, Daniel A. Brown, is on the team of curators which also includes Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens Chief Curator Holly Keris, 6 Ft. Away Gallery founder Shawana Brooks, artist and educator Dustin Harewood, and Ritz Theatre and Museum administrator Adonnica Toler. Here’s DB:

I’m honored to have been chosen by Holly Keris, the J. Wayne and Delores Barr Weaver Chief Curator of the Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens, to be one of the jurors on the panel and am pretty excited to work with my friends Shawana Brooks, Dustin Harewood, and Adonnica Toler – that’s formidable company! — along with some new friends I’ve just recently met on the panel. My mom passed away at home in 2017 under the care and guidance of Community Hospice so this is a pretty close-to-home experience and opportunity for me.
