“Art is the only way to run away without leaving home” -Twyla Tharp

If you could embody your ideal vision of Nest, Habitat, or Home in a single artwork, what would it look like?

The global pandemic has compelled many of us to become housebound for long periods of time. It may have distanced us from family and friends, or from careers and colleagues. It has put people out of work and exacerbated homelessness. How have the last 20 months changed your notions of home?

What does the word “Home” mean to you?
Is it a place? A building? A person? A memory? An object? A story? A feeling? Perhaps it is a synthesis of all of these?

Submissions will be reviewed on a rolling basis, and if they meet parameters of the Call for Art Submission Guidelines, will be presented to jurors for possible inclusion in a Virtual Exhibition. Some submissions may be printed and displayed in-person as physical exhibition space allows.

Guest jurors (TBD) will be professional artists.
