WEATHERED: An International Call for Works About Wear or Signs of Time Passing
Deadline: November 15, 2019
Entry Fee: $40 for up to FOUR entries submitted. $5 per each additional entry.
Open to: Open to international and local/regional artists
Exhibition Dates: January 24 - February 21, 2020
Exhibition Location: Manifest Gallery (Cincinnati, OH)
Contact: info@manifestgallery.org
Additional Information: The Japanese concept of wabi-sabi includes the appreciation for the ingenuous integrity of natural objects and processes. Time wears all things. Literally taken weathering is an aspect of the elements, but not without time. Wind, rain, sun, fire, and ice, and even mechanical means, transform everything. Weathering then is the process by which things in our world, and the world itself, are in the process of always becoming. In appreciating such processes one becomes aware of the signs of surviving age, stress, life, the toll of an ordeal or accomplishment, and existence itself. Through weathering a compelling narrative unfolds. Artists are encouraged to take a broadly creative view in interpreting the theme as it applies to their work. Submissions can range from the most traditional realism to the most conceptual, abstract, or experimental.

MUNDANE: An International Call for Works About the Ordinary and Everyday
Deadline: November 17, 2019
Entry Fee: $40 for up to FOUR entries submitted. $5 per each additional entry.
Open to: Open to international and local/regional artists
Exhibition Dates: January 24 - February 21, 2020
Exhibition Location: Manifest Gallery (Cincinnati, OH)
Contact: info@manifestgallery.org
Additional Information: There is something powerful about finding inspiration and meaning in the ordinary everyday things and spaces around us. In the artist it represents a Zen-like independence from assumed ideals, and a dexterity of mind and perception that, when practiced and shared through visual art, transfers the potent sense of appreciation to the unsuspecting viewer, like a sage gifting illumination of a higher nature. Artists are encouraged to take a broadly creative view in interpreting the theme. Submissions can range from the most traditional realism to the most conceptual, abstract, or experimental.

PERIPHERAL: An International Call for Works About Edges and Boundaries
Deadline: November 19, 2019
Entry Fee: $40 for up to FOUR entries submitted. $5 per each additional entry.
Open to: Open to international and local/regional artists
Exhibition Dates: January 24 - February 21, 2020
Exhibition Location: Manifest Gallery (Cincinnati, OH)
Additional Information: Limitations inspire creativity. Edges—the periphery of awareness, skill, media use, capabilities, and concepts—form the mold that creative trailblazers attempt to define, expand, and break free of. In turn new edges are created, new limitations defined. We are curious how artists consider the concepts of boundaries, edges, or the 'peripheral' as it relates to their creative practice and the subject, content, or form of their work. Artists are encouraged to take a broadly creative view in interpreting the theme as it applies to their work. Submissions can range from the most traditional realism to the most conceptual, abstract, or experimental.
More Information
