Call For Entry: Un-American

The Art Center in Dover, NH seeks entries for a juried art exhibit, July 1 - August 31. $100 award. Juror: Barbara Mata. The theme is Un-American. America today is a divided nation. Black/White, male/female, red/blue, conservative/liberal, native born/immigrant. These labels serve to divide us instead of unite us. Do they really apply? Are they useful going forward? What was considered "settled" years ago is now being seen as insufficient. Artists have an unusual place in society, where they can call attention to these issues in ways that are insightful, moving and yes, funny. We want to hear from you the artists on the subjects you want to speak clearly about. All artists (18 years and older) residing in the USA and internationally are eligible to enter up to 3 original works which can include acrylic, assemblage, charcoal, collage, digital art, drawings, fiber art, graphite, oil, pastel, photography (traditional and digital), printmaking, and watercolor. $25 entry fee.
