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 PERIPHERAL.

Limitations inspire creativity. Edges—the periphery of awareness, skill, media use, capabilities, and concepts—form the mold that creative trailblazers attempt to define, expand, and break free of. In turn new edges are created, new limitations defined. We are curious how artists consider the concepts of boundaries, edges, or the ‘peripheral’ as it relates to their creative practice and the subject, content, or form of their work.

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