Competitions Mills Pond House Gallery’ Juried Exhibition: Time
U.S. National Deadline: March 8, 2019 – In today’s society, cost-effectiveness, efficiency, deadlines, and other pressures often cause us to rush anxiously about. “Time is money” is an essential value. Visual art cannot literally embody the flow, the passage, or the pressures of time, as potentially can music, dance, literature and other time-based media. And yet the concept and a sense of time are often called forth by still art—whether it be a feeling of instantaneity, timelessness, or something in between. This exhibition seeks visual works that engage the notion of time on some level, whether relating to the concept, the experience, or the evocation of time.
Entries will be judged on the originality and insight with which they embody this theme visually in traditional as well as new media. A brief explanation such as might be printed on a label along with the artist’s information can be helpful, but the best work will succeed in conveying meaning by itself. Longer explanations will not be considered. Nor should it be assumed that the image accompanying this call is an indication of the kind of entries being sought.
On display: May 4 – June 1, 2019.
