Salisbury University Art Galleries – HERE/ NOT HERE – Juried Exhibition

Salisbury University Art Galleries – HERE/ NOT HERE – Juried Exhibition

This Deadline Expired: Monday, June 1, 2020

Maryland’s Eastern Shore has many beautiful vistas of sandy beaches and bucolic farm land, but it is also filled with suburban sprawl, strip malls and chicken houses. The art depicting our area often captures our picturesque beaches, birds, barns, and boats but rarely do we see images of the forgotten and overlooked spaces which are equally a part of this place. HERE/NOT HERE calls on artists to capture, explore, and depict those unscrubbed and often unseen places. Salisbury University is looking for artwork that tells the stories not often told about the landscape and architecture that have shaped this place we call here. The liminal spaces, the tension zones, and the hap-hazard, slap-dash, crap-laps.

This call is open to all artists living and/or working within 150 miles of Salisbury, Maryland. They are open to all media from traditional to digital and experimental.

In observance of the guide lines currently in place for COVID-19 (as of April 29, 2020), Salisbury University will be hosting HERE/NOT HERE as an online and in-print exhibition. Selected artwork will be on display on-line and be featured in a full-color exhibition catalog. All included artists will receive a copy of the catalog. For those selected artists who are able to send artwork they will have a physical exhibition on campus when and if they are able to re-open to the public. As the University knows more about re-opening they will keep all applicants informed.

Artists may enter up to 3 works of art. A non-refundable entry fee of $15 is required of each applicant, regardless of number of works entered.

Val Rossman has been creating drawings and paintings in her studio in Philadelphia for the last 25 years.  Her work has gone through various stages, however, her wonderful sense of color combined with a lyrical and often whimsical mentality have always infused her drawings with a lush  and personal aura.  The combination of rich and unexpected hues and gestures with sometimes questioning formats give the work an unforgettable presence.

My artwork talks quietly about the underlying significance of the domestic sphere on artist production. It argues for the relevance of craft, specifically ceramics and fiber arts, by creating a conversation between the two mediums. Displaying a fascination with the way fiber marks clay, my ceramics exhibit just how subtle those marks can be.
