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