Folktales Reimagined / Calls & Submissions

Type: Calls & Submissions

Fee: Free


Folktales inspire those young and old. They harken back to childhood and stories of culture and home. This exhibit showcases tales of the past from voices of contemporary artists. Our exhibit hall will be the home to work from local artists who have reimagined classical Nordic folktales. These tales include The Witch in the Stone Boat, Three Billy Goats Gruff and Thumbelina.

We are looking for original pieces of art that have a modern twist on a choice of three traditional Nordic tales. Artists of all skill levels, experiences, and mediums are welcome to apply. We welcome artists of all backgrounds, races, ethnicities, ages, and walks of life. This is a juried show, with a jury from our own Program Committee.

Nordic Folktales Reimagined is supported by the Oregon Cultural Trust and the Cultural Coalition of Washington County.
