The Arts Center Gallery at Nazareth College
Entry Deadline: Nov. 10
The Arts Center Gallery at Nazareth College in Rochester, New York is calling all U.S. artists to apply for our new national exhibition, Mixed Media. The exhibition will feature works across various media to showcase what this new generation of mixed media artists are doing with their work in order to create a space for advancing the public’s awareness and appreciation of this interdisciplinary field. Mixed media artists are routinely pushing the boundaries of materials and concept by exploring new technologies, techniques, aesthetics, and crossing disciplinary borders. So rather than limiting artists to a narrow theme, we seek work which is not afraid to push these boundaries by being inventive in process, technique, material, and concept. Work from any media will be accepted including all contemporary craft. We are pleased to announce that the exhibition will be juried by Ted Lott and we look forward to representing this excellent and eclectic field.
Best in Show will receive a $300 Prize. Two Honorable Mentions will also be awarded.
