CALL FOR ENTRIES


 

STRATA – Fragments

Deadline: November 1, 2022

Medium: All

Location: Santa Fe, New Mexico

This exhibition will feature artists whose work expresses and articulates the myriad, exciting and challenging ways in which our reality has become fragmented. All of us experience the dizzying splitting of our attention among the burgeoning opportunities of ever-improving digital devices, the abundance of disparate and competing news reports and the allure of social media. Our bodies themselves are increasingly prosthetically enhanced, and humanity embraces the possibilities of artificial intelligence.

Contemporary art, as possibly never before, is an ecstatic discourse of fragmentary styles and genres…

Maryland Federation of Art – Light and Shadow

Deadline: November 2, 2022

Medium: All

Location: Online

Where there’s light, there must be shadow. Whether an artist knows it or not, light and shadow are essential to all forms of art, either as the subject of the piece, or the material being used to create it. From the dramatic chiaroscuros of the European Renaissance to the interactive and immersive experiences of Mary Corse and Yayoi Kusama, light and shadow continuously fascinate artists. Pieces that play with this dynamic are eligible for MFA’s 5th annual Light and Shadow exhibition.
