Lost World/Found World
Susquehanna Art Museum, Harrisburg, PA
In the abstract, artists have long delighted in the “lost and found,” whether it is through a line, color, or a concept. Any object closely observed can be a portal. This theme may be interpreted in a variety of ways, from abstract to representational. Exodus and evacuation, whether caused by catastrophic events, climate change, the aggression of despots, or exercises of free will all come under this relevant umbrella. Alternately, it can be associated with arrival, awakening, and beholding a new reality. Seek out the lost, and show us what you find.
Lost World/Found World will be a juried exhibition on view from January – June 2014. (Exact dates are still to be finalized.) During the Susquehanna Art Museum’s transitional period into our new location in the heart of Midtown, Harrisburg, the DOSHI Gallery is holding special exhibitions at The State Museum of Pennsylvania. Find all of the guidelines for entries & important dates at sqart.org/doshi-gallery-artist-opportunities.
Submission Deadline: November 25, 2013
Protect Me From What I Want
Sunshine Art+Design, Lancaster, PA
This show is inspired by American conceptual artist, Jenny Holzer. More specifically, it is inspired by one of her truisms, PROTECT ME FROM WHAT I WANT. The things that we want are in control of us (Especially during the holidays). Her ‘truisms’ started as a series of one-liners on posters pasted anonymously around New York City and grew to be large scale projections on buildings, t-shirts and wall plaques all over the world. Her content and minimalist aesthetics make profound statements about the world of advertising and consumer society today. What does PROTECT ME FROM WHAT I WANT mean to you? What does it mean to society? What does it mean to Lancaster? This call for entries is asking you to respond to this truism.
- Pick up your 12 x 12 wood canvas at Sunshine Art+Design (NOV 5-9). You may attach anything you want, mount a photo, use pastels, charcoal, ink, paint, collage, silkscreen, markers, etc on the 12” x 12” piece of plywood. If anything is falling off your canvas it will not be accepted.
- You may only use the colors black, red and white. Shades of grey are okay, too.
- Drop off your finished piece at Sunshine Art+Design on Saturday, November 30 between 10 am and 6 pm.
- Late entries will not be accepted.
