CALL TO ARTISTS
2017-2018 CALL FOR ARTISTS
Deadline: October 12, 2017
ArtsWest seeks artists of ALL AGES to exhibit their artwork in our C-shaped Gallery that is also the lobby of our Playhouse. It is the mission at ArtsWest to produce artistic events that provoke conversation, incite the imagination and use live theater as a powerful agent of change. We are seeking artwork that enhances our 2017-2018 season narrative of Identity – titled I AM.
SUBJECT MATTER: ArtsWest is exploring the theme of IDENTITY for our 2017-2018 I AM Season. We recognize that who we are is precious to us – we use it as the ground on which to build meaning for ourselves as we make choices and move through our lives. Along the way, we learn to articulate the things that define us – things like gender, age, race, religion, sexuality, politics, and class. Our theater season is full of characters and playwrights who are unafraid to say “I AM” – and who refuse to allow their identity to be defined by others. Inspired by the poet Mary Oliver’s “Tell me – what will you do with your one wild and precious life?” we are encouraging artists to submit work that speaks to the boldness of IDENTITY.
We are able to accommodate all wall-mounted visual art, small space for ceramics, no video installations.
