Call to Artists - Umpqua Valley Arts Center - "SYMBOLS, LETTERS, WORDS ---- TEXT US!"
The Umpqua Valley Arts Center in Roseburg has published a call to all Oregon artists for a juried exhibit entitled "SYMBOLS, LETTERS, WORDS ------- TEXT US!" Artists are challenged to create a work of art in which some element of written or symbolic language or text is an integral visual part of the composition. Actual meaning may be superfluous --- or it may be vital --- but it's the visual aspect that will be considered most important. Think of text as mark-making. The juror is John Olbrantz, Director of the Hallie Ford Museum of Art at Wilamette University in Salem. Submissions are due by August 10th, 2011. For a complete prospectus, visit the Umpqua Valley Arts Center website.
