CALL FOR ENTRIES: Searching For Meaning at Gallery Route One
The California Society of Printmakers invite members to submit work for a juried exhibition at Gallery Route One to take place April 3 – May 9, 2021 in response to the theme, Searching For Meaning. This is the first of our Extraction series of exhibitions, members are welcome to participate in both opportunities.
Searching for meaning. That is what artists do. We take the world around us: observations, events, experiences and we extract from that our existing worldview, or sometimes place upon it a new view. A view looking down from above, looking down over the edge. This past year we have all been searching for meaning in a pandemic, in political upheaval and social strife. There will come a time when we will no longer be in the present, when we will be looking at the past, at all that has happened, and the art created during this time. How will we see our shared experiences? How will we form a new view? This exhibit is an opportunity to take a step back, to stand on the edge and look over into the unknown. If we can create the meaning that we all search for, how will we exemplify that? What will it look like?
