2020 Calls for Artists and Artwork

CALLS FOR ART – GALLERY 140 and More


WHERE EDGES MEET – CALL FOR ARTISTS
March 2020 at the NMHU Kennedy Gallery

Due for review no later than February 7, 2020

Borders, barriers, and boundaries serve as containers, keeping in and keeping out.  Walls and wire often define the line between; a simple line where two edges meet, one side in, the other out.

This call for artists seeks creative works utilizing any media including print, paint, fabric, digital, and poetry to explore the crisis faced in the US as it confronts the issue of immigration and the use of intimidation, dehumanization, incarceration, fear, terror, physical, and emotional force to keep out the “other”.

Artists are encouraged to incorporate interactive, participatory works that engage the audience in creative ways.  Entry proposals, prototypes, or existing works for consideration are due for review no later than February 7, 2020. Artists will be notified of their acceptance by February 14, 2020.

The juried show will be held during the month of March 2020 at the NMHU Kennedy Gallery.  Accepted works shall be delivered to the Gallery, the week of February 24th and picked up after April 1st, but no later than April 10th. 

WHERE EDGES MEET, is an outgrowth of the “Understanding Immigration Task Force”, an informal group of concerned citizens in Las Vegas, NM. This task force will serve as the jury for the exhibition.
