Open Juried Call: Drawing: An Exhibition
“Drawing offers a direct and immediate method of trawling the imagination, of unlocking the collective and personal unconscious, and unravelling experiences that are deeply and intuitively felt. It allows the hand to give free expression to that which is buried in the recesses of the mind...”
From the cave dwellers of Lascaux to the e-Drawings of our present century, the urge to draw is innate and impulsive.
Artists are invited to submit for consideration up to two drawings that stretch the boundaries of the medium. Be expansive and imaginative with the potential of this expressive form of communication. All types of drawing are welcome: figurative gestures; recordings of history and memory; two-, three- and multi-dimensional as well as site-specific works.
Gallery space is limited. Individual pieces must not exceed 48 inches in width. Unframed pieces must be ready to hang with submitted hanging instructions.
Provide 1 jpeg for each of the (up to 2) works for consideration with titles, dimensions, materials, and dates. Include a statement: maximum 100 words.
Two pieces may be submitted for $50 fee (via paypal). Submission details below.
