TVAA’s Call for Art – Words With A View


Call for Art from the TVAA Downtown Gallery

Words With A View

April 4 – 29, 2016

It has been said that “a picture is worth a thousand words.” This phrase supposedly came into use in early advertising and newspaper coverage of events to increase impact and save space. For “Words With A View”, artists are invited to create art that is inspired by words that have significantly touched them emotionally. The “words” may be a few lines of a favorite poem, a passage of prose, lyrics from a song, or a quote by someone admired. The words need not be well-known. Just use them to create art that illustrates and/or was inspired by the words. Whether the “words” are a part of your artwork is up to you. Please include the words and a brief statement of how they inspired your work in your submission.

Please submit up to three entries (jpgs at 300 dpi and no longer than 1800 pixels on longest side) to Curator Jan Partin by March 202016 at  Prospectus available at or from Jan.
