Masquerade

This Deadline Expired: Wednesday, October 7, 2020

Masquerade
“Mask, a form of disguise or concealment usually worn over or in front of the face to hide the identity of a person and by its own features to establish another being. This essential characteristic of hiding and revealing personalities or moods is common to all masks. As cultural objects they have been used throughout the world in all periods since the Stone Age and have been as varied in appearance as in their use and symbolism.”1

Deja 42 Art Gallery is seeking artists who would like to present their work in their upcoming October/November exhibition, Masquerade. Creators working in all media (painting, photography, sculpture, drawing, mixed media, ceramics, textile, et al.) are welcome. Pieces may reflect the creator’s interpretation and reflections on masks and identity, the challenges to individuality as masks have become mandated, and/or the transformative beauty, symbolism, and celebration that masks embody. All media will receive due and equitable consideration.

Deadline for submission is Wednesday, October 7th, 2020.
Accepted artists will be notified by Friday, October 9th, 2020.
Gallery-ready pieces must be delivered to the Gallery before but absolutely no later than Friday, October 16th, 2020.
A $20 fee via PayPal is required for up to three different artworks submitted.

It is preferable that artworks are for sale.
Deja 42 Art Gallery retains a 40% commission on all sold artwork.
Since there are five Saturdays in October, the show will open Saturday, October 17th, 2020.
