MARK: An International Call for Works Focused On Mark-Making

Manifest Creative Research Gallery   /   Deadline: 12/29/21

Download in PDF Format

The Cincinnati based non-profit arts organization and gallery, Manifest, invites visual artists and designers to submit artworks that focus or call attention to mark-making. Submissions can range from the most traditional to the most conceptual, abstract, or experimental of any media addressing this theme

Art builds from a touch: pen to paper, light to sensor, tool to medium, brush to canvas. That touch leaves behind a signature, the mark, the most fundamental impression of the artist's contact with the work. These impressions can exist on their own or be used to build something greater than its parts, but still given life by them.
MARK is a call for works about the artist's hand, the signature left by the maker's tool, and the energy it contains.
$40 for up to FOUR entries submitted. $5 per each additional entry.
