The Winter Show
December 2, 2013 – January 6, 2014
Reception: December 15, 2 pm – 4 pm
Entry Deadline, November 26

While winter may initially cause us to think of cold temperatures, snow, ice, stormy weather, and how the world looks during our coldest season of the year, it may also evoke memories, emotions, and thoughts of colors, foods, fashions, aromas, music, customs, traditions, and activities associated with the season.  For this show, artists are invited to submit work that depicts “winter” in all its various aspects.

October 1 – 31, 2013

Superstitions are a part of every culture. We’ve heard that 13 is an unlucky number; Friday the 13th is an unlucky day; 7 is a lucky number; knocking on wood to ward off bad luck; carrying a rabbit’s foot for good luck; a black cat crossing your path brings bad luck; finding a four-leafed clover brings good luck; a pot of gold lies at the end of a rainbow; and many more.  For this show, you are invited to submit work in any medium that expresses your interpretation of a common superstition.

Americana, Primitive, & Outsider Art (Aug)

Americana, Primitive, & Outsider Art
August 1 – 30, 2013
Reception August 4, 2-4 pm

Americana art: images that reflect the charm and nostalgia of America’s past.

Primitive art: art that is characterized by a childlike simplicity in its subject matter and technique, most often associated with the cultures of indigenous people.

Outsider art: works of extreme individuality by creators who are typically untrained artists. “Art Brut” – art “uncooked” by culture. An art at its most pure, most powerful, and most meaningful – an art produced entirely for individual satisfaction and inner need with no regard to exhibition, fame, or monetary reward.

For this show, you are invited to submit your own interpretation of one of more of these genres. All media accepted. Maximum size for 2 dimensional work – 48 inches on any side.

Please submit up to three entries (jpgs at 72 dpi and no longer than 1000 pixels on longest side) to Curator Duke Horn by July 26th.

Music: Rebels & Visionaries (July)

Exhibit July 1 – 31
Reception July 14, 2 to 4

Often, songs of rebellion and vision are responses to wars, from “The Star Spangled Banner” to songs from the Civil War, World Wars I and II, to the Vietnam War, and after.

However, music genres may also reflect rebellion or a visionary spirit:  Folk songs, Jazz, Swing, R & B, Rock ‘n Roll, Rock, Hip Hop, Alternative, etc.  Performers, musicians, lyricists, and music composers, including film composers like John Williams or Philip Glass, may be rebels or visionaries.

Artists are asked to submit their interpretations of any music or musical artist, with work that reflects the meaning of this theme, in any artistic style, from traditional to contemporary, in its many forms.
