The call for entries for the 2009 Portland Museum of Art Biennial will be mailed in early spring of 2008. All artists who have spent time during the last 2 years (2006-2008) working in Maine are invited to submit images of their work, in any medium, for consideration by the jurors.

As a series, the Biennial exhibitions create a visual record of Maine's evolving contemporary art scene and testify to the profound influence that the landscape, traditions, and people of Maine continue to have on living artists. Maine has nurtured artists for centuries, and its influence reaches far beyond its borders; although the majority of Biennial artists are residents, a number are part-time residents or recent graduates of Maine's many prestigious art programs. This blending of influences and experiences enriches the state's artistic community and helps to define its art scene as one that benefits from a diversity of traditions both established and new.

The Portland Museum of Art Biennial is made possible by the William E. and Helen E. Thon Endowment Fund.
