DESCRIPTION

Deadline: May 10th, 2021

Entry fee: FREE

We are asking artists to reflect on the theme of "Home." What's your idea of home? Is it a safe place? Is it a feeling?

 

How has "shelter in place" affected your views of home? The word took on a greater significance during 2020 as families hunkered down and adjusted to tighter living spaces. Some have enjoyed the gift of time at home, while for others, it has been hectic and chaotic.

Looking at the broader perspective, some may see home as a place where they grew up, or where they live now, while for others, it is a distant memory or association. Some see it as a happy place, and others find it fraught with memories of difficult family dynamics What senses or memories remind you of home - old recipes, keepsakes, your favorite song? 

 

Define "home" with or without the pandemic's influence. We look forward to receiving a variety of perspectives on this theme. There will be one Grand Prize winner, 4 Runner-ups, and one Emerging Artist winner (18 & younger).
