Organization Name: Manifest Creative Research Gallery and Drawing Center

Organization Location: Cincinnati, OH

Type: Calls & Submissions

The Cincinnati based non-profit arts organization and gallery, Manifest, invites visual artists and designers to submit works that in someway incorporate tables. Open to any and all traditional and non-traditional visual arts 2d, 3d, or 4d media, genre, and subject.

A table holds meals, and dirty dishes. They fill rooms like centerpieces, and the sit quietly off to the side. They are a place to gather and play, eat, talk. They stand steadfastly beside our beds holding pills and lamps and tissues and books and glasses. They wear cloths, or gather water stains. They host clutter, and collect graffiti, carved initials, and gum. We arrange things on them, and make plans.

A table is a surface where things are placed, lessons are learned, and adventures planned.
When is a table an altar?

TABLE is a call for works of any media featuring, using, or about Tables and the things that happen there.

ANNUAL CASH AWARD: The annual Manifest Grand Jury Prize will result in the awarding of one significant cash prize ($5000) to a single work selected as the ‘best of the entire season’.
