Nude Figure Juried Exhibition – Call for Artists
The Wayne Art Center invites artists to submit work in the mediums of painting, drawing, and sculpture for a nude figure juried exhibition to accompany the exhibition, “The Nude, Mirror of Desire.”
Deadline: 9 Sept 2016
Digital entry fee: $45 for up to two works
Subject matter of submissions should be focused on the human figure with an emphasis on, but not exclusive to, the nude figure.
Jurors Paul DuSold and Scott Noel look to assemble a survey of contemporary responses to the nude to illuminate resonances between traditions of imagining the figure and the artist’s personal experience. The theme of mirroring is a metaphor for the persistence of the nude as a theme in art and our shared visual understandings of the body.
We are very pleased to announce $3,000+ in prize awards this year for the nude figure juried exhibition. The jurors, Paul DuSold and Scott Noel will select and announce the award winners on October 16, 2016.
Once an artist is accepted into The Nude Figure, additional group and/or solo exhibition opportunities may come available at the Wayne Art Center.
