Boundaries / Calls & Submissions

January 30, 2020

Organization Name: Confluence Gallery

Organization Location: Twisp, WA

Type: Calls & Submissions

Fee: Free


We cordially invite you to contribute to our upcoming exhibit Boundaries at Confluence Gallery in Twisp, WA.
The show will open on April 18, 2020, and run through May 30, 2020.

Boundaries can be real or symbolic and can divide us or protect us. While they may be firm and impenetrable, they can also be breached – by invitation, intrusion, or invasion. They may be healthy, hurtful, protective, or oppressive. We invite artists to explore boundaries in all their manifestations – literal, figurative, geographic, personal – and to ruminate on how boundaries have protected or burdened them. We welcome all interpretations and works of art, both representational and non-representational, that encompass the serious, thoughtful, playful, and provocative.
Number of pieces to submit: Up to 4

Your own original work.
