CALL FOR ENTRY

Correspondence

Submission Deadline: Extended to August 8, 2020

 

Synopsis: In collaboration with Lone Star Letter Writers, Art Room announces a new call for entry for the virtual exhibition, Correspondence. The exhibit will celebrate the art of letter writing. Curated by Lone Star Letter Writers, the show will consist of 20 to 50 pieces of original art from submissions by artists, letter writers, collectors, philatelist, and poets. The selected pieces of work in the show will be no larger than the maximum dimensions to send a letter with one Forever Stamp (6 1/8 inches x 11 1/2 inches). All submissions will be sent by mail so postmarks, postage, and the wear and tear of transport can be displayed as well.

 

In the digital age when we can send a message across the globe in seconds, Correspondence aims to showcase the unique and noteworthy ways to send art by post. The exhibition will be on display via Art Room’s website. The artworks received in the mail for the show will be artfully photographed for the virtual presentation. A physical exhibition is forthcoming.

CALL FOR ENTRY

Open Call for Entry

Submission Deadline: Extended to August 8, 2020

 

Synopsis: “It is a fact that people of color, and more specifically Black people, are the most underrepresented group in the art world. We find ourselves questioning our importance and our voices to be understood outside of the white gaze and white space. I find this to be not only a reflection of privilege but, more specifically, education.

 

“We, as Black people, are always placed in the position to teach instead of existing. I am humbled to be chosen to juror a show, creating a safe space of understanding and acknowledgment for us. This show is open to any who feel their work gives voice to their personal experiences, whether figurative, non-representational, text-based, image-based, and everything in between.

 

“I want you to know that even if you do not make it into this show, this is the time to apply to anything you want. The world has momentarily opened its eyes—jump on it. If this show calls to you, take this chance on yourself and apply. (I’m talking to the one Black girl in a sea of white eyes in the back. I see you.)”
