All work exhibited must be the work of the exhibiting artist/artisan, who must be present at all times during the show. If you work in more than one discipline (i.e. you paint, and also make jewelry), then you must submit images for each discipline for which you wish to be juried. It is possible that you will be “juried in” for one discipline, and not for the other. No manufactured items or items made from kits will be accepted.

Immigration – An American Story
“Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”
So ends Emma Lazarus’ famous poem, “The New Colossus,” immortalized at the base of the Statue of Liberty. One cannot tell the story of America without telling the story of immigration, they are one and the same. Immigrants constitute an enormous part of the fabric of our nation, its warp and woof, our culture, and our character. To tell their story is to speak a living history for many, it is a crossing, a passage, a journey to a land of hope and opportunity. For many, it is a cage, a boundary, an impossible divide, a wall.
This Spring, the Dunning Gallery at NCC-Monroe will feature an art exhibit featuring works from all mediums (painting, photography, collage, sculpture, and more) that explore America’s complicated identityand sometimes fraught relationship with immigration in an aim to capture the beauty and stories of triumph that accompany immigrants and the cultural heritages and histories they bring to this country, alongside the bitterness, racism, and challenges that beset it and them as well.
