An International Call for Art About Small Subjects

Manifest Creative Research Gallery and Drawing Center   /   Deadline: 05/05/20

Download in PDF Format

The Cincinnati based non-profit arts organization and gallery, Manifest, invites visual artists to submit works of art about small subjects.

It is a matter of perspective, of a certain proportional ratio between the observer and observed. Small things examined bring understanding. This requires a willingness, a wisdom, to inquire—to step outside of one's ordinary paradigm into another world. It has been through our observation of things both grand and minuscule that humanity has found its enlightenment, its hope, and its humility. How are small things captured, conveyed, or considered by artists? How is the experience of the very small translated through creativity? How are the epiphanies shared, the Universe expanded?

Contrasting with Manifest's annual Magnitude Seven small works exhibit, MINI/MICRO calls for works of any size which address the subject of small things.

$40 for up to FOUR entries submitted. $5 per each additional entry.


This exhibit has no defined expectation for type or style of work to be considered or selected. Submissions can range from the most traditional to the most conceptual, abstract, or experimental.
