A call for works show
Where do we find them and how do they shape us? Why do we embrace or reject them? When does a unifying contour become a divisional line?
Artists from the Great Lakes region are invited to enter a juried exhibition considering these and other questions related to the borders we find in contemporary life. Hosted by River House Arts and Owens Community College Center for Fine and Performing Arts, the exhibition is an opportunity for both emerging and mid-career artists, including those working collaboratively. Submissions from artists 18 years of age and older will be accepted through the online service Cafe at CallForEntry.org through February 1, 2016. A full prospectus for the call can be found at riverhousearts.com.
The Juror: Sarah Rose Sharp writes about art and culture in the greater Midwest region for Art in America, Hyperallergic, KnightArts, ZIPR Magazine, and other arts publications. She was named a 2015 Kresge Literary Arts Fellow for Arts Criticism and was just named as a participant in the 2016 International Art Critics Association/USA Section (AICA/USA) and the Creative Capital/Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Grant Program.
