CALL for ENTRIES: Take Flight

2013 December 29

Enter the 5 Art Contest today!PACK

My 14 year old TAKES HIS LUNCH everyday.  No joke.  He is allergic to wheat, and public school lunches, aside from having wheat hiding everywhere, are not to his liking.  I have ruined his ability to eat fake food.  So, his lunches are often a little like homemade Lunchables™ with a little of this and a little of that.  But the last time I had to fly, I encounter the most bizarre concept–Lunchables™ for adults.  Well, not literally; at least I don’t THINK Oscar Mayer® is making in-flight foods.  Maybe a little tapas lunch of your own making will help you tackle this gravity defying Call.  Take a look…

Check out this Call for Entries for Take Flight from the Kiernan Gallery (Lexington, Virginia). The entry fee is very reasonable, and I’ll bet you already have lots of work that works with this theme…

Take Flight


Humans have always desired to take to the skies. Fascinated by flight, we construct machines to propel us into the air; from kites and hot air balloons to supersonic jets. We admire birds and costume ourselves with wings, imagining what it would be like to fly without assistance.

For Take Flight, The Kiernan Gallery seeks
images of and about defying gravity.

ELIGIBILITY: Open to all artists

MEDIA: Photography

SALES: Kiernan Gallery no longer takes commission on sold works.

The Kiernan Gallery DOES still have incentive to sell your work. The gallery was founded by an emerging artist, and recognizes the importance of selling work; they believe that if artists are paying a submission fee, the gallery should not also take a portion of the sale. They do reserve the right to negotiate 20% in order to make a sale.
