“PATTERN” International Call for Works Exploring Pattern / Calls & Submissions

May 4, 2021

Organization Name: Manifest Creative Research Gallery

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 original works of art that that address or feature pattern as a primary, but not necessarily exclusive, element. All manner of interpretations and explorations involving the concept or examples of pattern are welcome, including traditional and non-traditional approaches in any media.

Whether by chance or design, natural or human-made, organic or geometric, a pattern is a motif repeated in such a way as to take on a predictable cumulative visual effect. Visual artists, designers, and craftspeople throughout history have embraced pattern as a device both for its utility and its visual impact. Manifest is curious how this is happening in the art of today, whether directly (works largely about and made by pattern) or indirectly (works featuring pattern as a primary element, image, or form supporting other content).

$40 for up to FOUR entries submitted. $5 per each additional entry.

ANNUAL CASH AWARD: The annual Manifest Grand Jury Prize will result in the awarding of one significant cash prize ($2500) to a single work selected as the ‘best of the entire season’.
