THE FL3TCH3R EXHIBIT is Focused on Work with Strong Social and Political Content
Open Tuesday, June 27 to Thursday, August 31, 2017
The 2017 5th Annual FL3TCH3R EXHIBIT is an international juried exhibit focused on socially and politically engaged art. Socially and politically engaged art has been integral in creative expression since the beginning of visual arts. This exhibition explores the current trends and trajectory in this field and these collective creative works hopefully serve as an avenue or agent for societal transformation and exposure of social and political points of view. The goal is to recognize and advance this endeavor by providing a venue for the exhibition of socially and politically engaged art. Furthermore, the exhibit’s proceeds after expenses will fund the Fletcher H. Dyer Memorial Scholarship for an art and design student.
Work entered in the exhibit should reflect current issues that affect contemporary culture and investigate societal and political concerns. Diverse media and approach to the theme are encouraged.
Entries must be received by August 22nd, 2017 with non-refundable entry fee of $ 40.00 for up to three works/titles entered and for each additional piece please add $10.00 per artwork/ title (ONLINE, EMAIL, or USPS POSTMARK). The Extended Deadline is AUGUST 23rd-31st, 2017 with payment of $ 45 non-refundable entry fee for up to 3 pieces plus $10 per additional title.
2017 Juror: Entries will be selected by 2017 juror Anita Kunz, Canadian renowned illustrator/painter, whose work has made her one of The National Post’s 50 most influential women in Canada and whose magazine covers for The New Yorker, The New York Times Magazine, Time, Rolling Stone, Sports Illustrated, Vanity Fair and Fortune and jacket covers for more than 50 books have reached readers the world-round.
