A Call To Artists
Hello Artists,
We invite you to contribute to our exhibit “Shelter” at the Confluence Gallery in Twisp, WA. The show will open on June 8 and will run through July 13.

The word “shelter” can mean many things. In ancient Sanskrit,
Sangha describes it as a position or in a state of being where you are emotionally covered and protected surrounded by a community.
In other examples, the word can also give meaning to the following;
*to physically protect and shield…as in a structure
*a core essential of survival….as in a refuge
*separation from surroundings for people….as in a home
* a cover for animals….as with rescue
The word can either imply temporary or it can be permanent.
Shelter is an essential part of safety either as a physical structure or a psychological resting place. I invite artists to submit works in conceptual form as well as in two dimensional paintings and three dimensional sculpture and expressions. I will look forward to your translation of the topic.

*Number of pieces to submit: up to 5
