Call for Art for members of the Katonah Museum Artists' Association
Entries open from March 2, 2019 to April 2, 2019
Juried exhibition at the Fine Arts Gallery of Westchester Community College in Valhalla, New York. Show dates: May 15 to June, 2019
“Geographical, political, personal, gender-related, restricting, protecting, frightening, enticing, behavioral, societal, cultural—boundaries surround us and challenge us. What boundaries make you feel comfortable? What boundaries do you object to? What are the boundaries you have broken through? The history of art and of mankind evolves around the establishment and destruction of boundaries. The subject has been brought to light again in the current political discourse and we will take a look at it through an artistic frame of reference in this exhibit.”
