The EARTH has spoken loudly in 2017! Art has always been a powerful tool for expressing ideas and feelings about issues of concern. The Earth Speaks IV is a regional open call for a juried exhibit in the ARTSPACE Gallery, in April 2018. The Earth Speaks is an artist’s means of capturing their concern regarding the climate crisis and how it is affects our planet, as well as an opportunity to offer possible solutions.
Through art and creative expression, the exhibit will shine a light on:
- Man-made issues that pose a threat to our planet (litter, global warming, pesticides, GMOs, water pollution, over-fishing, deforestation, fracking)
- Environmental disasters (tsunamis, hurricanes, oil spills, smog, nuclear meltdowns)
- Ideas for solutions (solar and wind energy, bio fuels, reduced carbon footprint, recy-cling, tree planting, organic farming)
The Earth Speaks IV is a regional open call for work. Artists from the following states are invit-ed to enter: ME, NH, VT, MA, CT, RI, NY, NJ, PA, VA, MD, DE, DC. $1,000 in awards are available in a variety of mediums including 2-D, 3-D, Photography, and Printmaking. Students are encouraged to enter.
Deadline for Submission: Friday, February 9, 2018
