Artist Opportunity: Open Call at West Annapolis Artworks

By August 22, 2014 Call to Artists

UPDATE:  **See Updated Reception Date below**

Su Anne Martinez of West Annapolis ArtWorks is an MFA member, and she has an opportunity for MFA artists.   This is an open call for artists to submit work for the upcoming exhibit at West Annapolis Artworks & Fine Framing:

Patrice Drago - Into the Maine Woods

Into the Maine Woods, Acrylic on Canvas, Patrice Drago

 “The Art of the Forest”

“Trees are poems that earth writes upon the sky…”
– Kahlil Gibran –

In today’s world of rushing from here to there, making appointments, emailing, texting and eating on the run, we don’t always take the time to catch our breath. A walk amongst the trees can be a sharp and welcome contrast; the poetry of timeless nature provides a renewed perspective, and can help us become grounded and rejuvenated. The beauty of trees – all kinds, in every season — can wash away the distractions, take us outside ourselves and remind us of what is truly important and grand.

Artists are invited to submit works for consideration that include or suggest the poetry of trees.

Exhibit Dates: October 2 – November 8
Opening Reception:  Thursday, October 16, 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. 
West Annapolis Artworks & Fine Framing
