Juror: Dr. Kryssi Staikidis, Professor of Art and Design Education at Northern University
Deadline: September 26, 11:59pm
In this time of isolation and confinement – when we can often see only a portion of another’s face – we are creating this juried exhibition to celebrate faces – and the people behind them. We would also like to examine the ways in which people mask themselves or masquerade. We are looking to define this genre as broadly as possible: self, other, representational, abstracted, likeness, current, past, psychological, emotional...
We are interested in all forms of mark making; and all media are welcome. The show will be juried by Dr. Kryssi Staikidis, Professor of Art and Design Education at Northern University. The exhibition will run from Oct 28 thru Dec 19, 2020. We encourage everyone to enter (details below).
Entry fee: $40 for one to three images. $10 for each additional image (lower charge for students -- High school or college students can pay a reduced fee of $25 per 3 entries with $10 for each additional entry (Please include copy of Student ID)). If paying by check, it must be received prior to jurying.
Exhibition contingency plans:
At this time, we plan to have an actual exhibition at the gallery. There will be no in-person opening, though we will have a virtual opening event on Zoom (parameters to be determined). The gallery will be open, but both hours and visitors will be somewhat restricted until it is safe to do otherwise. The show will also be online with all artists identified, along with their work and their statement. If the city closes all businesses again, due to COVID -19, the gallery will be closed, but we will still have the entire show online visible to everyone who visits our website; and we will send out a link to everyone on our mailing list, potentially around 4000+ viewers.
NEW (Temporary) Gallery hours are: Fridays, 3-7; Saturdays and Sundays, 12-4. Masks for all visitors are required and no more than 6 people will be allowed in the gallery at one time.
