“Mundane” – Works About the Ordinary and Everyday / Calls & Submissions

November 18, 2019

Organization Name: Manifest Creative Research Gallery and Drawing Center

Organization Location: Cincinnati, OH

Type: Calls & Submissions

Fee: $40 for up to 4 entries / $5 per each additional entry


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

There is something powerful about finding inspiration and meaning in the ordinary everyday things and spaces around us. In the artist it represents a Zen-like independence from assumed ideals, and a dexterity of mind and perception that, when practiced and shared through visual art, transfers the potent sense of appreciation to the unsuspecting viewer, like a sage gifting illumination of a higher nature.

Artists are encouraged to take a broadly creative view in interpreting the theme. Submissions can range from the most traditional realism to the most conceptual, abstract, or experimental.
