ART CALL : Gimme Shelter
National Juried Exhibition, January 6 - 26, 2017
Entry Deadline: Sunday, December 11, 11:59 PM MT
“Some people talk to animals. Not many listen though. That's the problem.” ~ A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh
Mahatma Gandhi said that a nation’s moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated. Who do we love, and how do we express that love? And if we listened, what would we know? Show us the souls of the animals you love, whether feathered or furred, realistic, whimsical, or imaginary. We invite your participation in any medium; both 2-D and 3-D are welcome. There are no size restrictions; however, space will be a consideration. All US artists and artist teams are welcome to apply.
This exhibition will feature a community component with The Humane Society. Donations to their Wish List will be accepted at the gallery on their behalf.
Best In Show $500
Fabric Lenny, Manchester, England
Prolific image-maker and serial collaborator Fabric Lenny has been working creatively throughout the UK in a variety of art forms for over 20 years. Although primarily concerned with drawing and the meandering line, he has collaborated with dancers, musicians, photographers and other visual artists in the creation of interesting visual meanderings which are candy for the eye and musings for the soul. His recent collaborations have taken him to Europe and North America, where his work has been exhibited alongside his live drawing performances. Public Art commissions created by Fabric Lenny have been received with enthusiasm and have demonstrated how his work can animate a space and engage an audience.
