CALL for ENTRIES: Facing the Wall

2018 January 25

GREEN walls

While on vacation recently, I was having dinner in a restaurant only to see the chef come out and clip herbs off a wall planter in the dining room.  I have a friend that has installed a decorative green wall in their livingroom.  And I know several others that are making vertical gardening plans.  It seems planting vertical not only makes the best use of space, but it is more physically accessible for lots of people for whom bending and stooping are not an option.  Walls of food, how lovely.  This next Call is looking for your work surrounding the idea of walls.  

Check out this Call for Entries from Art League Rhode Island for Facing the Wall at The VETs Gallery (Providence, RI).  $25 entry fee, a great juror & a timely curatorial theme add up to a great opportunity…

Rhode Island

ELIGIBILITY:  Open to all artists 18+

MEDIA: Open to all 2D & 3D media (no video)

THEME:  Walls have delineated nations & cities throughout human history. Walls define what is inside as separate from what is outside, and while this definition . . . invariably includes a defining of identity. Whatever the motivation, walls identify what is within them and what is outside them, placing limits on both. We are now in an era of new walls – walls built on the borders of nations, ideologies, cultural and personal identities. Whether attempting to break through, climb over, dig under, circumvent, use as a canvas, or decorate, artists respond to the walls that confront them.
