Call for Art!
Who says art has to be serious???
Humor has the ability to transcend language and cultural barriers, connecting people through laughter and shared ideas and experiences. For THE ART OF AMUSEMENT artists are encouraged to explore the vast realm of humor and its myriad of interpretations. Let your imagination run wild with absurd scenarios or everyday scenes with unexpected comical elements. Whimsical and lighthearted, satirical and ironic, amusing caricatures or portraits highlighting humorous quirks of your subject matter… the possibilities are endless!
This exhibition is open to submissions from all artists working in any medium. Artists are encouraged to submit artwork that has not been shown at Gallery X in the previous 6 months. Work may be submitted during regular Gallery hours beginning April 14, the deadline for submissions is Sunday, April 28. Can’t make it during gallery hours? Contact us to set up an appointment to drop off your work. When submissions are brought to Gallery X the artist will fill out a submission slip with basic contact and labeling information.
Looking to save time? Print your submission slip ahead of time and have everything ready to go when you bring in your artwork!
