Call for Artists, Young Artists Group: Here on Earth

April 21, 2016 @ 6:00 pm

Call for Artists: Young Artists Group (YAG), Ages 15-21
Exhibition Title: Here on Earth
Dates: April 21, 2016 – May 13, 2016
Artist Opening Reception: Third Thursday April 21, 2016 from 6-9pm

Show Theme: ‘Here on Earth’
Description: From Hieronymus Bosch’s Garden of Earthly Delights (circa 1503) to the Land artists of the 1960s and 70s, visual artists have offered innumerable interpretations of the earth, its power and its fragility. These interpretations have changed over time, as have conditions on earth. In recognition of Earth Day, works inspired by earth or made from earth are invited, as are works depicting environmental concerns, controversies or issues. Members of the Young Artist Group (YAG) are encouraged to interpret the theme broadly, in terms of choice of media and content. This exhibition is open to art work in all media and styles. If you have questions about the theme or about becoming a member of YAG, please contact Linda Brant, Art Educator: [email protected], with ‘YAG Submission’ in the subject line.
