Time – Call For Artists
Mills Pond Gallery invites artists to submit works for Time, a juried exhibition May 4 – June 1, 2019. In today’s society, cost-effectiveness, efficiency, deadlines, and other pressures often cause us to rush anxiously about. “Time is money” is an essential value. Visual art cannot literally embody the flow, passage, or pressures of time, as potentially can music, dance, literature, and other time-based media. Yet, the concept and sense of time are often called forth by still art. Whether it is a feeling of instantaneity, timelessness, or something in between. This exhibition seeks visual works that engage the notion of time on some level, whether relating to the concept, experience, or evocation of time.
Deadline: 3 Mar 2019
There is a non-refundable entry fee of $45 is for up to three images.
Juried by James H. Rubin. Entries will be judged on the originality and insight with which they embody this theme visually in traditional and new media. A brief explanation printed on a label along with the artist’s information can be helpful. The best work will succeed in conveying meaning by itself. Longer explanations will not be considered. All visual art mediums are acceptable except sound and video art. Work must be original and completed within the past four years.
