Gallery Clarendon in Arlington, VA seeks entries for a national juried art exhibition to be held January 5 – 31, 2019. For this exhibition, artists are called to submit works that interpret and express signs of the times – real or imagined, literal or figurative, positive or negative. Art may address questions, protests, or celebrate our changing world. Submissions can range from traditional to conceptual, both 2-d and 3-d work.
Deadline: 28 Nov 2018
