The Cincinnati based non-profit arts organization and gallery, Manifest, invites visual artists to submit works which in some way address the theme of Dark.

We close our eyes to it, are born out of it. So much hides within it, and disappears—even us. Under our beds, in the deepest of woods, past the furthest reaches of the Universe, there lurks the dark. It is the unknown, the opposite of light—the impossible paradoxical weight reciprocal to the speed of light itself. Darkness saturates existence, gifting the insight brought by contrast. Therefore, perhaps, it somehow serves as a source for happiness and even light itself.

Artists are encouraged to take a broadly creative view of the theme. This includes any manner of interpretation, from literal to symbolic and philosophical.

$40 for up to FOUR entries submitted. $5 per each additional entry.
