The Walsh Gallery at Seton Hall University in collaboration with the G.K. Chesterton Institute is seeking submissions for a group exhibition curated by Jeanne Brasile and Tony Capparelli. The exhibition is to be juried by the curators and Dr. Dermot Quinn and Father Ian Boyd. Open to all artists working in any medium. Exhibition dates are September 7 through October 3, 2010. Deadline: July 15, 2010. Submission Fee: $15
Artists are encouraged to submit artwork exploring themes influenced by G.K. Chesterton, one of the most influential writers, critics and thinkers of the early 20th century. Chesterton’s influence ranged from inspiring Ingmar Bergman’s “The Magician” to the comic book character Gilbert from the Marvel series “The Sandman.”
“Driving without Destination” is the title of an article published in The Chesterton Review (volume XXVI, no. 3, August 2000) written by Dr. Dermot Quinn, professor of history at Seton Hall University. It is also the theme of the exhibition.
Participating artists will be asked to read Dr. Quinn’s article and create artwork in response to its theme. Read Quinn’s essay here: http://academic.shu.edu/libraries/gallery/Driving_Without-Destination-Dermot-Quinn.pdf
