treat gallery is excited to announce open call: “All of The Lights.”

Light, literally or metaphorically can stir conversation on Direction, Intensity, Color, Contrast, and Hardness. There are seven basic properties of light. Reflection, Refraction, Diffraction, Interference, Polarization, Dispersion and Scattering. Properties of visible light are intensity, propagation direction, frequency or wavelength spectrum. Light can be conceptual: have you seen a light at the end of a dark tunnel?

In Edgar Allen Poe’s poem “A Dream” from the 1830’s, he wrote “In visions of the dark night, I have dreamed of joy departed— But a waking dream of life and light, Hath left me broken-hearted.” 10 years ago, rapper Kanye West wrote: “Lights: Cop lights, flashlights, spotlights, strobe lights, street lights (all of the lights, all of the lights) – Fast life, drug life, thug life, rock life every night (all of the lights, all of the lights)” In the 2008 film “The Dark Knight,” character Harvey Dent states “The night is darkest just before the dawn. And I promise you, the dawn is coming.” For “All of The Lights,” treat gallery wants to see your interpretation of this theme.

Please contact [email protected] with any questions you may have.

Deadline to apply is Sunday, January 17th at 11:59pm EST.
