Deadline February 15:
A Man’s World
March 20th. to April 28th., 2016

For this juried exhibition we’re asking artists to step into the man cave to observe and uncover the concept of the male image and it’s social, physical, and psychological evolution here in the U.S., and within various cultures around the globe. In today’s world, what does a man need to be a man? How have, (or haven’t) these needs changed in regard to society’s perceptions and expectations throughout history? In the future, what characteristics will denote what a man is? Possible images to explore: can be positive or negative and may include such male archetypes as: superheroes and villains, cowboys, athletes, gangsters and politicians, madmen and rockstars, revolutionaries, computer geeks, wallstreet tycoons, poets and preachers, loners, zealots, and idiosyncratic artists.
