Third Places / Calls & Submissions

July 29, 2024

Organization Name: Manifest Creative Research Gallery and Drawing Center

Organization Location: Cincinnati, OH

Type: Calls & Submissions

Fee: $45


The Cincinnati based non-profit arts organization and gallery, Manifest, invites visual artists and designers to submit original works that are about or which symbolize or depict the places we go when we are not at home and not at labor. Open to all traditional and non-traditional genre and media.

The place that isn’t where we live, nor where we labor, is known as a “Third Place”. In a third place, we are not beholden to the same roles and responsibilities that generally define us. In a third place we are at leisure; we can sit, eat, play, talk, drink, and otherwise engage in activities with other people. Third places provide the opportunity to build relationships and engage with people outside our immediate sphere. They are places of learning, relaxation, and they are places of potential conflict.

How do artists represent this important personal and social catalyst?

Submission fee covers up to three entries. $5 per each additional entry.

Includes exhibitor honorarium of $50 for each exhibiting artist, and new Grand Jury Award of $1,000 for one jury-selected work from among the exhibits on view.
