Call for Artists: Bond/Bound

POSTED ON 3.25.2020

CALL FOR ARTISTS - BOND/BOUND

SECOND STREET GALLERY - ONLINE

SUBMISSIONS DUE APRIL 5, 2020

EXHIBITION OPENS APRIL 15, 2020

 

Second Street Gallery is currently accepting submissions for a new online-only exhibition, Bond/Bound, set to open digitally on Wednesday, April 15, 2020. 

Bond/Bound responds to the tension between social connection and social distancing in our current moment. Though at times the efforts to contain COVID-19 feel intensely isolating, we have also found creative opportunities to connect deeply with family, friends, and community. Bond/Bound will feature works in a range of mediums created during, and inspired by, this period of uncertainty. 

 

EXHIBITION REQUIREMENTS:

We encourage collaboration if possible, but both collaborative and individual works will be considered. Any medium and size is welcome.

Please submit a .jpg photo of your work for consideration with a resolution of at least 1080 x 1080 pixels. In addition to the image(s) of your work, artists must write a 200 word statement about the inspiration, process, and ideas behind their creation. This statement will be shared as a caption along with the artist’s name and social media handles if applicable. Send both your image(s) and statement to outreach@secondstreetgallery.org.

Accepted images will be posted on Second Street Gallery’s Instagram as well as an online image gallery on our website.
