“Chasing Ghosts VI: Art that Pierces the Veil through remembrance, legacy, and beyond”
This year edition will be VIRTUAL and as always the emphasis is the idea of revealing the unseen. The term ghost may be interpreted in many ways, not necessarily meant to be a literal elucidation. This year’s interpretations might be loaded with the added turmoil from current social, health, environmental, and political climate. Do you express your deepest fears or concerns through your work? Do current political. health, and environmental concerns shadow or define your work? What parts of the past leave their mark on your work? Is a legacy revealed through your work or your process? Is memory a vital vehicle of expression for you? Do you inadvertently honor something from your past or concern for the future through your work? Artists are encouraged to enter work that is any interpretation of the call. All mediums and modes of expression are welcome.
