Dark Skies at The Confluence: Art in Twisp / Calls & Submissions

December 13, 2023

Organization Name: The Confluence: Art in Twisp

Organization Location: Twisp, Wa

Type: Calls & Submissions

Fee: Free


What is it about the night sky that enchants us and fills us with wonder? How does darkness inspire mystery through what it cloaks – and awe in what it reveals? The sky is vast and limitless, yet it can feel intimate and enhance our feelings of solitude. Why is the darkness necessary for the health of our planet and all of us that call it home? I invite artists to reflect on these contrasts and consider their relationship with the dark sky. What do you see? What do you want us to see?

We invite you to contribute to our Dark Skies exhibit at the Confluence Gallery in Twisp, WA. The show will open on 03/02/2024 and will run through 4/13/2024. When emailing the gallery at exhibits@confluencegallery.org about this show, you must include “Dark Skies” in the subject line.

Number of pieces to submit: up to 3

Here are the rules. Each piece must be:
Your own original work.
Available for sale.
Created in the last 3 years.
Never previously been shown at The Confluence.

Please Note: The curator(s) have the right to refuse work, even after work is delivered to the gallery if it does not contribute to the direction, cohesiveness, or available space of the show.
