ARC Gallery

Entry Deadline: May. 6

This exhibition is a contemporary examination of the human figure. All societies have created their own concepts for how to portray the human body. ARC looks to examine contemporary society’s and artists’ views of the human body in all of its manifestations. All mediums and materials are eligible including video and performance, no projections and media-based installations, due to space limitations. Artwork must include human figurative aspects. Original works only, created within the last three years.
