[DEADLINE EXTENDED]: The Cincinnati based non-profit arts organization and gallery, Manifest, invites visual artists and designers to submit works that explore the aesthetics of decoration, glamour, patterns, and surfaces. Submissions can range from the most traditional to the most conceptual, abstract, or experimental of any media addressing this theme.

How can you tell when something is special?

Start with cake: there are cakes, and then there are wedding cakes. A wedding cake is covered with carefully designed icing, written on in cursive, adorned with edible flowers, glitter, stacked high in tiers and presented in the center of a table. Another example, a gift is a gift; a present comes with a bow.

To mark something as notable, we decorate it.  We nest special things in beauty.
