Boundaries, Borders, and Thresholds, the 2016 Kreft Juried National Exhibition, will illustrate physical, cultural, conceptual, and psychological borderlands. What are the effects of a physical or conceptual boundary on our perceptions of reality? What does it mean to occupy a borderland between cultures or identities? What are some of our moral borders, those regions into which we must delve in order to live ethically sound lives? How do we approach significant thresholds in our own lives? What forms of non-human entities—from quarks to galaxies—occupy borderlands, why do they exist there and not at some other more stable place?
Prints, drawings, paintings, photographs, digital images, sculpture, fiber art and video are eligible.
Only original artwork produced within the past five years will be accepted—reproductions are not permitted. Entrants must be 18 years of age or older to apply.
$1,000 Best of Show
$500 2nd Place Award
$250 3rd Place Award
Recipients of awards will be determined by the juror and presented at the artists’ reception. The juror, Sarah Kohn, is assistant curator at the Flint Institute of Arts.
The artist chosen as “Best of Show” will receive a solo exhibition in the Kreft Gallery at Concordia University Ann Arbor in fall of 2016.
There is a $25 (non-refundable) entry fee for two submissions.
