I’ll Be There: An Exhibition about Love

I’ll Be There: An Exhibition about Love

This Deadline Expired: Friday, April 15, 2022

Annmarie Sculpture Garden & Arts Center invites emerging and established artists to submit original artworks to the juried exhibition ‘I’ll Be There: An Exhibition about Love.’ This is a national juried exhibition. All media and performance welcome; small to large-scale works; indoor and outdoor works; cash awards. This exhibition will take place in their Main Gallery and will be open to the public June 10 – August 28, 2022.

‘I’ll Be There’ invites artists who think critically and deeply about the meaning of love in our culture. In the realm of our romantic lives, self-love, in our families, spiritual love, and love between friends, it is obvious that love informs our decisions and can strengthen our understanding of our communities.

“Yet when we commit to true love, we are committed to being changed, to being acted upon by the beloved in a way that enables us to be more fully self-actualized. This commitment to change is chosen. It happens by mutual agreement.” – bell hooks

Susan Shipley is an abstract painter. She paints spontaneously. While enjoying the work of many abstract artists, she finds that the consistency and sameness, while calming, offers little surprise. She prefers to work spontaneous using dramatic colors in a dynamic fashion. The end results fall in the category of abstract expressionism.  Rather than providing calm, she prefers to provoke an immediate emotional response.  A short while ago, she fused and slumped glass creating 3 dimensional work; however, of late she just paints. She received a Ph.D. later in life and practices psychology in the schools with children. Susan is a Baby Boomer and a happy grandma.
