Play + Inspire Gallery Winter 2020-21 Juried Open Call

Play + Inspire Gallery Winter 2020-21 Juried Open Call

This Deadline Expired: Sunday, December 13, 2020

How are you seeing change, coping with change, and being a change-maker? This broad yet timely question guides curation of this show.

All artists are invited to submit their work for consideration to a Virtual Exhibition curated by artist and educator Chloe Alexander at Play + Inspire Gallery. This online platform is a curatorial collaboration between Rebecca Potts of Teaching Artist Podcast and Maria Coit of Curated for Kids. The online exhibit aims to be an internationally accessible 24/7, curated, professional, virtual presentation of exciting contemporary work from around the world. The show is promoted via social media, email list, and additional network contacts. Each artist is also highlighted individually on social media.

All submissions will be considered for social media, podcast interviews, blog, and future opportunities.

Accepted artists will be invited to share a brief video of their process and concepts, which will be included on their artist page. Videos are NOT required, but are an added bonus – a way for you to share more about your work with their audience.

8 Artists will also be invited to do an instagram live studio visit!

They will be creating several lesson plans based on the themes in the show and on individual works in the show.

Artists who are not juried into the show will receive feedback on their submission.

I spend a lot of time in nature observing plants, the environment, and natures cycles. While in or out of the studio, I'm creating both complex and compact environments that enliven personal residences, gallery walls, and city streets. In work ranging from large scale sculptural installations, and living compilations, to miniature assemblage and mixed media works on paper, nature is my rubric and my compass. This is the way I make connections between human interests and the environment that surrounds us. 

Simultaneously, nature is my metaphor and material. Grafting together a variety of flat and dimensional elements is not uncommon in my practice.
In different ways, I'll incorporate earth, vines, flowers, roots, seeds, pigment, and wax into sculpture, and mixed media works on paper, more akin to assemblage. Nature and plants frequently act as metaphors for our human experience as they are passively or overtly layered or stitched amidst found imagery, maps, photographs, and words.
