CALL FOR ENTRIES: “Not Just Drawing: A Line With Intent”

In March 2018, ARC will present “Not Just Drawing: A Line With Intent”
Prospectus and application form

We are looking for a creative consideration of the use of a line.
What is intent? What is the underlying driving purpose or “thought-framework” for making a mark or image on a surface or in a space? Can “intent” include the intention of having no intent? How much does habit, convention or chance dictate our action and how much comes from an original and personal sense of expressed understanding? How much comes from the unconscious or irrational fabric of our experience? Are there other ways to make a line than with a #2 pencil?
This exhibition will be juried by F.David Reif, Distinguished Professor Emeritus, Univ. Wyoming. BFA, Painting, Drawing, Printmaking, The Art Institute of Chicago, MFA, Sculpture, Yale University. All media considered.
The juror will choose 3 honorary awards including “Best of Show” that will be posted in the exhibit and listed on the ARC website.
Check out the prospectus and application form here.

CALL FOR ENTRIES – “Seeing RED” an open-walls show at ARC Gallery

February 2016, ARC will present an exhibition entitled, “Seeing RED”

INFORMATIONAL PROSPECTUS AND CALL FOR ENTRIES
****  submit online ***

Deadline for Submissions: Jan. 25, 2017 @ 11:59pm CST

“Seeing RED” will be an Open Walls Exhibition, giving artists the opportunity to exhibit their work at ARC without a juror.

ARC is asking artists to reflect on what “Seeing RED” might look like, what it might reference metaphorically, emotionally, politically, or literally. We’re seeking work that challenges the status quo or obvious, while asking the artists to have fun playing with this very broad title.

All mediums and materials are eligible if they conform to the size limitations. The art-work must be no more than 18 inches wide, (including a possible frame). Media-based installations will be accepted as long as the artist provides the viewing equipment, and the horizontal size of this equipment is no more than 18 inches.seeing-red1

CALL FOR ENTRIES – “We the People…” an open-walls show at ARC Gallery

In mid-July 2016, ARC will present an exhibition entitled, “We the People….”

INFORMATIONAL PROSPECTUS AND CALL FOR ENTRIES
***Download the prospectus or  submit online ***

Deadline for Submissions: July 2, 2016 @ 11:59pm CST

As part of the important conversations swirling around this election year, ARC invites artists to join an exciting new open walls show in August 2016 entitled “We The People…”

With this exhibition we are looking for work that critically explores and dissects the current election season and the wider impact government has on our lives. We, in this country (U.S.), are all affected by those whom we elect, regardless of racial, sexual, gender, class, citizenship status. To grapple with issues and ultimately to vote is a responsibility and an honor; and it calls for discussion in which both visual and non-visual artists, can have much to offer.

“We The People…” is an open walls show. In a democracy, everyone’s voice matters.  So in this show, if you apply, you are automatically included in this exhibition.  There are just a few rules – to find out more, click here to download the prospectus, or click here to submit now, online.
