REALITY & ART – A Juried Exhibition at ARC Gallery
ARC Gallery and Educational Foundation
Entry Deadline: May. 30
Reality, Realism, Representation. Art is often about searching for and expressing reality, whether literally or conceptually. We are seeking works that are representational in both the traditional sense of being compelled to express what you see and reality as a conceptual sense of using the contemporary current environment as a reference. This environment of shifting and contradicting truths, denial of science, proliferation of ‘alternative facts,’ and manipulations of imagery makes understanding reality and truth an illusive undertaking. The artist’s striving to express and understand reality becomes more complicated with this shifting appropriation of what is mere perception and what is reality.
