The Heartland Review and Morrison Gallery at Elizabethtown Community and Technical College invite submissions of artwork for a juried exhibition. The theme for the 2010 show is inspired by the idea of organic setting.
Over the last 100 years artists have continually turned to organic design as a response to the growing ubiquity of mass-produced, machine-made and computer-generated designs. ECTC welcomes works of art of every media type and style that address the topic of organic, organic design or organic setting through one or more of the following themes: nature, natural materials, the body, responses to modernity, identity, environmentalism and urbanism.
The Heartland Review asks for a $10 contribution for up to six entries to support the journal and the contest/show. Artists may submit up to six pieces; however, all artwork must have been created in the last six months prior to submission. The deadline for submissions is Feb. 1.
Artwork of finalists will be displayed in the Morrison Gallery at Elizabethtown Community and Technical College and be published in the 2010 spring/fall issues of The Heartland Review. The artwork which best depicts an “organic setting” will be awarded the 2010 spring issue’s cover and a $250 cash prize. The gallery exhibit will run from April 5-May 14 with a reception April 15.
