“Luminous” 2017 National Juried Exhibition - at Arc Gallery
DEADLINE: September 18th, 2017
THIS CALL IS NOW CLOSED
We are seeking work that captures the elusive magic of the word, “luminous.” How do you depict a glowing from within, that which reflects light, or something illuminated or bathed in light? Subjects may encompass the brightness of a celestial object, eyes glowing with love, an ardent heart, a halo of light, radiant power, something ablaze, or objects that are shimmery, sparkling, glistening, lustrous, incandescent. Surprise us with your interpretation.
Sculpture, painting, drawing, photo, printmaking, ceramics, assemblage, collage, mixed media, fiber art, glass art, artist book, illuminated artwork using an internal electrical source, illuminated artwork using an electrical cord
For this exhibition, Arc can accept work that is illuminated through an internal electrical source such as a battery or an external electrical cord plugged into an outlet.
Arc Gallery, 1246 Folsom St, San Francisco 94103
