CALL FOR ART

True Grit Art Gallery is seeking artwork and photography for an upcoming exhibition focusing on night scenes or scenes of the dark, ie: moonlit landscapes, dark rooms, candlelight, artificial light, street lights, neon, etc.

THEME

This exhibit will focus on the night (dark) and the effect it has on our visual surroundings. The light of the moon, from street lights, or even from candels can enhance the beauty of our world, often adding color and energy or subtleness and mystery depending on the subject matter. Picture the vibrant energy of a colorfully lit carnival midway at night contrast against the subtle beauty of a moonlit landscape or seascape. Picture the haunting mystique and ambience of a solitary street light on some lonely road or a still-life lit by candlelight. The possibilities are endless. What we are not looking for: horror/ paranormal themed artwork 

SUBMISSIONS

This exhibit is open to any artists interested in participating. Interested artists should submit images of up to 3 available artworks via email to truegritartgallery@gmail.com or via direct Facebook message. Artists may submit up to 3 works in any two dimensional (paintings,drawings,photography) or three dimensional (sculpture, assemblage) media they please. Please include a short bio along with a short artist’s statement on what the artwork(s) mean to you and/or how they relate to the theme of the exhibit. If offering the work(s) for sale, please include retail price points as well. Artists are encouraged to offer their works for sale but it is not a requirement.
