“Dream Beyond COVID” (a juried exhibition)
Wilsonville Arts & Culture Council
DEADLINE January 10, 2021
NO SUBMISSION FEE
DREAM BEYOND COVID is a juried, thematic group exhibition of visual works that are square in format. As many of us struggle through this time of isolation and limitation of “normal” activity, what do we long for? Here are some leading questions:
What do we wish we could do?
Whom do we want to see?
Where do we long to go?
What do we wish to experience?
How do we hope the world will have changed?
How do we hope WE will have changed?
What are the silver linings, the positives that have arisen during this time?
Are there things we now appreciate & reflect upon more deeply, observe more fully?
How has COVID changed us, forced us to grow?
Each artist may submit one art work for consideration. Any media are welcome, as long as the work is in a square format.
The virtual exhibition will be on display from January 18 – March 31, 2021 at
EXHIBITION TERMS: Works can be for sale, through the website, with WACC assuming a 20% commission. Details for delivery of the work to the patron will be arranged by WACC, acting as agent. WACC is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) — earned commissions will be used solely to support WACC’s programming and mission. We would like for no works to exceed $150 in price.
ELIGIBILITY AND RESTRICTIONS: The juried exhibition is open to all artists, young and old (student, enthusiast, amateur, and professional), working in any medium or media, living in or working in (or within a 50-mile radius of) Wilsonville, OR. We will accept any art media presented in a square format (i.e., 5″ x 5″; 10″ x 10″; 12″ x 12″; etc.), and submitted as a high-res jpeg image.
By submitting work, you agree that the images are your own work and that you own all rights to the images, and you take full responsibility for the content of the imagery, including the likeness of any recognizable individuals. Further, if presenting a photograph of people, you have obtained your subject’s permission to exhibit their likeness in a public forum. Work that is copied, or done as a directed assignment in class (where all the student pieces look very similar, following the same step-by-step process), is not eligible. We want this call to be open to students and teachers.
