Name of Call: That Which Surrounds You (online)
Eligibility: Unlimited
Deadline: 4/30/21

Art has always been an important way to describe and convey our impressions of the world around us. For many, in the past year of lockdown and isolation, the world has been limited to that which surrounds us: our homes, our gardens, our immediate family. Yet, at the same time, we are keenly aware of the societal environment that engulfs our personal lives and communities. Artists are invited to share their experiences of that which surrounds them, whether interpreted literally as one’s physical surroundings and companions, the environment or allegorically as one’s thoughts, fears, hopes, feelings, values, or other concepts.

All media will be considered, including painting, printmaking, photography, drawing, sculpture, book art, and video.
