The Cincinnati based non-profit arts organization and gallery, Manifest, invites visual artists to submit works of art about small subjects.

This requires a willingness, a wisdom, to inquire - to step outside of one's ordinary paradigm into another world. It has been through our observation of things both grand and minuscule that humanity has found its enlightenment, its hope, and its humility. How are small things captured, conveyed, or considered by artists? How is the experience of the very small translated through creativity? How are the epiphanies shared, the Universe expanded? This exhibit has no defined expectation for type or style of work. Submissions can range from the most traditional to the most conceptual, abstract, or experimental. $40 for up to 4 entries. $5 per each add'l entry. Deadline: May 5, 2020. More info.

Twinkle: An International Call for Works of Art About Sparkle and Enchantment

The Cincinnati based non-profit arts organization and gallery, Manifest, invites visual artists to submit works of art about sparkle, enchantment, facade, flashiness, and the seductive power of bright lights and color. Twinkle is a small word. A twinkle is light and small, brilliant and fleeting. Twinkles are distractions, attractive attention-traps that sit on the surface where they may seem like shallow decorations - until you remember that the faint twinkle of a star is in reality a massive hydrogen-fueled interstellar explosion seen palely at a distance of billions of miles. This exhibit has no defined expectation for type or style of work. Submissions can range from the most traditional to the most conceptual, abstract, or experimental. $40 for up to 4 entries. $5 per each add'l entry. Deadline: May 7, 2020. More info. Contact: email or call 513-861-3638.

Monsters: An International Call for Art About Monsters, Real or Imagined

The Cincinnati based non-profit arts organization and gallery, Manifest, invites artists to submit works of art that address the theme of Monsters. Like the gods of ancient religions, monsters embody cultural standards, distilled into extremes. Across ages they traipse the landscape, paralleling humanity's progress, morphing, submerging, and reappearing, revealed from within a disguise oft-made by man. Whether real or imagined, metaphorical or literal, monsters have shaped civilization, steered us to where we are now, and exist in our as yet to be determined future. What can artists tell us about the monsters that came before, are here now, and are yet to come? This exhibit has no defined expectation for type or style of work. Submissions can range from the most traditional to the most conceptual, abstract, or experimental. Monsters is open to everyone. $40 for up to 4 entries. $5 per each add'l entry.
