|Open Juried Call: Drawing: An Exhibition |
From the cave dwellers of Lascaux to the e-Drawings of our present century, the urge to draw is innate and impulsive.
Artists are invited to submit for consideration up to two drawings that stretch the boundaries of the medium. Be expansive and imaginative with the potential of this expressive form of communication. All types of drawing are welcome: figurative gestures; recordings of history and memory; two-, three- and multi-dimensional as well as site-specific works.
Gallery space is limited. Individual pieces must not exceed 48″ in width.
Two pieces may be submitted for $50 fee (via PayPal).
Janet Read is exhibiting in the group show
