Deadline October 22: Off the Wall Gallery’s 11th Annual Juried Exhibition, PETS, seeks outstanding artwork that
focuses on our best non-human friends but reaches beyond just cute photos. Some ways to
imaginatively consider our theme include:
What does a pet mean to your life or someone else’s? After all, we know that pets
abolish loneliness, improve human health, teach responsibility and extend families.
Can you use a pet’s fur or feathers as part of your medium?
Is there a special way you remember a pet you lost? Can you use an object of
remembrance, such as a toy or collar, as a starting point of creation?
Think about a pet’s vantage point and his or her habitat within a home.
What’s a favorite game? A place to curl up? A special way of communicating?
And then there’s meal time, not to mention snacks in between.
The jury will accept artists based on the quality of the work as presented electronically and
a brief, two-sentence statement to the jury.
Through October 22, 2015, we’re accepting submissions in all
media—2D, 3D or multimedia—meeting two size requirements:
2D work when framed must be no larger than 48 inches in
combined dimensions (height + width); and 3D work cannot be
heavier than 15 pounds. You must supply images on disc or flash
drive, with a list of titles, framed dimensions, media, prices, a statement and an entry fee of $5
per work. No entries of actual work will be accepted.
