A collaborative exhibit between The Annex Gallery, Caza Sikes Gallery, and you.
The 2020 presidential election residuals left the country with an unresolved feeling. Whether your side won or lost, we all feel more divided than ever. The task: Create a piece that signifies how to heal our divided nation towards a common purpose in this next decade. Is this idealistic? Yes. Realistic? Possible. Your work can provide commentary on the pugilistic nature of national politics of the past decade, but must show hope for a better outlook in 2021 and beyond.
Call to Artists: SUBMISSION GUIDELINES
Open to everyone. The only limitation is that entries must represent original works which address the broad theme described above.
Open to any and all traditional two and three-dimensional media (painted works, photography, collage, sketch, sculpture, etc.)
SIZE LIMIT + NUMBER OF ENTRIES
To allow us the ability to select and hang a large selection of works, we ask that two-dimensional works stay within the size boundaries of 24 inches x 24 inches, and 3D sculptural works are no taller than 30 inches and no wider than 24 inches. Applicants can submit up to two pieces for consideration.
PRESENTATION + PRICING
If selected, your work must be delivered "ready to hang," in other words, nicely framed with all the hardware (wire or D-ring) needed to hang the work in our galleries. If the work is sculptural, it must be ready to place directly on a podium or the floor. Please also provide a suggested retail price.
Please submit hi-res images of your work below. You must have a Google account to submit via this form. If you do not have a Google account, you can email submissions to OneNationCincy@gmail.com. Images must be no smaller than 1000 pixels, and a minimum of 1MB in file size (with a maximum of 5MB). Please make the filename your last name plus the title of the work (example: Smith_OneNation1.jpg)
