TRANSCENDENCE: A CALL FOR WORKS ABOUT GOING BEYOND THE NORMAL
Deadline: September 8, 2019

Entry Fee: $40 for up to FOUR entries submitted. $5 per each additional entry.
Exhibition Dates: November 8 - December 6, 2019
Exhibition Location: Manifest Gallery, 2727 Woodburn Ave, Cincinnati, Ohio
Contact: info@manifestgallery.org
Additional Information: Consider work that addresses the idea of Transcendence as a subject, rather than an aspect of the ambition, dedication, and rigor of the artist themselves? How does visual art represent, either through subject, form, or content, a notion which, in some form or another, underlies much of human introspection and civilized activity since our earliest days as a species?

 Artists are encouraged to take a broadly creative view of the theme. This exhibit has no defined expectation for type or style of work to be considered or selected. Submissions can range from the most traditional realism to the most conceptual, abstract, or experimental.

Exhibition Dates: December 5, 2019 - January 6, 2020
Exhibition Location: The Kent Mansion Gallery on historic Mansion Row, 1015 E. Main Street, New Albany, Indiana.

Additional Information: Your artwork should explore light in darkness, hope and healing, or both ideas together—in whatever way that means to you. It may be very personal or have a broader relevance. You may choose to include the darkness in your work, but also make sure you include in some clear way, the light, hope, and/or healing that leads one out, even if it’s only small part to hang on to—make that small part unmistakable. KMG is open to the imagery you need to use to best express these concepts--we do not censor art.

DARK: CALL FOR WORKS ABOUT SHADOWS, NOCTURNES, NIGHTSCAPES AND DARKNESS
Deadline: September 9, 2019
Entry Fee: $40 for up to FOUR entries submitted. $5 per each additional entry
Exhibition Dates: November 8 - December 6, 2019
Exhibition Location: Manifest Gallery, 2727 Woodburn Ave, Cincinnati, Ohio
Contact: info@manifestgallery.org
Additional Information: The Cincinnati based non-profit arts organization and gallery, Manifest, invites visual artists to submit works which in some way address the theme of Dark. We close our eyes to it, are born out of it. So much hides within it, and disappears—even us. Under our beds, in the deepest of woods, past the furthest reaches of the Universe, there lurks the dark. It is the unknown, the opposite of light—the impossible paradoxical weight reciprocal to the speed of light itself. Darkness saturates existence, gifting the insight brought by contrast. Therefore, perhaps, it somehow serves as a source for happiness and even light itself. Artists are encouraged to take a broadly creative view of the theme. This includes any manner of interpretation, from literal to symbolic and philosophical.

LIGHT: CALL FOR WORKS ABOUT ILLUMINATION, EXPOSURE AND BRIGHTNESS

Entry Fee: $40 for up to FOUR entries submitted. $5 per each additional entry
Exhibition Dates: November 8 - December 6, 2019
Exhibition Location: Manifest Gallery
Contact: info@manifestgallery.org
Additional Information:The Cincinnati based non-profit arts organization and gallery, Manifest, invites visual artists to submit works which in some way address the theme of Light. We open our eyes to it, are born into it. So much relies on what it reveals and gives. From vision of the world around us to messages sent through fiber optics, from starlight to the sunlight without which life on Earth would not be possible, light is life, awareness, and information. 

Artists are encouraged to take a broadly creative view of the subject, but should address the general theme in some way, even if subtle and understated. This includes alternative meanings of the word, such as in 'jovial', 'not heavy', etc.

VOCs IN VIDEO CONTEST
Deadline: September 14, 2019
Entry Fee: $0
Open to: anyone over 14 years old
Contact: Lauren Anderson, Lauren.Anderson@louisville.edu
Additional Information: Help the Center for Healthy Air Water and Soil and Superfund Research Center at the University of Louisville’s Christina Lee Brown Envirome Institute explain Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) in a 3-minute video for a chance to win an Amazon eGift Card. There are over 10,000 Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) in the air around us. VOCs come from common household items such as air fresheners and household cleaners, new building materials like wood or fabric (anything with a "new car" smell), cigarette smoke, and industrial materials like paint thinner, inks, and adhesives. When there are high levels of VOCs in the air it can lead to headaches and asthma attacks and long term effects like heart disease and cancer. We are looking for easy-to-understand messages that teach a high school aged audience about VOCs in a creative, factually correct, and engaging way.

Submission to this exhibit may be initiated by either party. Artists will seek out an instructor who has been a key teacher to them or whose work they particularly respect and 'tap' them to participate in this project submission.
