MIRROR: Works About, Featuring, or Utilizing Mirrors / Calls & Submissions

October 15, 2022

Organization Name: Manifest Creative Research Gallery and Drawing Center

Organization Location: Cincinnati, OH

Type: Calls & Submissions

Fee: $40+


The Cincinnati based non-profit arts organization and gallery, Manifest, invites visual artists and designers to submit works that in someway incorporate mirrors. Open to any and all traditional and non-traditional visual arts 2d, 3d, or 4d media, genre, and subject.

Your mirror is the first window of the day. The one across from your bed, the one on the inside of your door, the one in the bathroom. There is another by the stairs where you can check your hair on your way outside, one inside the compact in your purse and one above the piano. There is one with a very fine frame in the hallway, one high on the wall of the living room, expanding the space to twice its size. There is one on the side of your toaster, one dimly reflecting your ankles as you walk past the glass of your bookcase. A few in your camera, in your phone, and at least three in your car. Two, facing each other as you check the back of your hair, reflected one in the other, shaping a tunnel of infinity in your own home.

A mirror reflects light, it reflects space, it reflects you. Sometimes a mirror is magic, delivering messages from another world.

ANNUAL CASH AWARD: The annual Manifest Grand Jury Prize will result in the awarding of one significant cash prize ($5000) to a single work selected as the ‘best of the entire season’.
