Flower (Re)Power: Call for Entries!
A Juried Art Show Designed to (Re)Power the Flower in Art!
When you couple the art class exercise/classic art staple of the still life with the flower – sumptuous siren of subject matter for painters big and small, the result is a brigade of flower art that ranges from straight representation to a kinetic sculpture where sunflowers turn circles in a wooden box. Like trying to write a love song, it is challenging to revamp the exhausted visual of the flower, bringing it into a contemporary art dialogue and finding new ways to approach it as formal element, subject, symbol, etc. With Flower (Re)Power, the Housatonic Museum of Art is asking artists, whether you love or hate flowers in art, to share works influenced by or that address the flower in any way. All media are welcome – sound, video, painting, sculpture, online projects, etc. Experimentation, critique, quirky perspectives, and general irreverence are encouraged!
Deadline: May 31, 2010
