Call for Entry: Roots

Gary Reed, Flight of the Blackbird

Where do you come from? What history, landscape, location, items, movements or people make up your roots? We invite any work that interprets your unique definition of the concepts of personal history, place, culture, family and other. How do you define you?

This show invites you to think of your interpretation of your history and makeup, whether that includes physical places and spaces, items or objects that remind you of your childhood or a past event, people, or even abstract works that create a mood or feeling that resonates for you. We invite broad and varied interpretations of this concept, the possibilities are truly limitless because we all define ourselves in such diverse ways.

The exposure for this event will be strong, to include our ongoing outreach and social media efforts - website, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, other social networking sites, eNewsletter, postcards, artists’ networks, assorted city, chamber, and neighborhood association emails and more. We will seek additional exposure available to us as a State-Certified Creative District. This is terrific exposure for 40 West Gallery, and the artists featured in this show!
