Seven Deadly Sins Open Call for Entries

Riverfront Renaissance Center for the Arts

Entry Deadline: Oct. 4

22 N High Stret
Millville, NJ 08332

For this exhibition, we challenge artists to observe their thoughts of the “Seven Deadly Sins”, and what they represent, through one or more works of art. Many people hold their own views of weighing “good and evil”. We find that such judgment can only be passed within context. There are many ways one can approach these ideas; through the utilization of literal representation, abstraction, color, form, line, movement, etc. All mediums are open for consideration. The RRCA will only be accepting two-dimensional and wall hung work only; no 3-D sculpture. The work presented may be suggestive, but not explicit.

All works submitted will be juried. Not all submissions are guaranteed to be admitted into the exhibition. The RRCA also reserves the right to refuse any works it deems to be inappropriate.

Entry Fee: $10 per piece

Deadline: October 4, 2013
