Open Call for Artists in OHIO, KENTUCKY, & INDIANA

Manifest Creative Research Gallery and Drawing Center   /   Deadline: 01/05/20

In 15 seasons Manifest's projects have included works by artists in 50 states and 43 countries. Beginning in its tenth season, Manifest launched an ongoing series of exhibits focusing on works by artists in its own three-state region. Four years ago we added projects that also focused on other definable regions outside our own. These Regional Showcases were offered to complement the very wide geographical makeup of most Manifest exhibits with a closer look at what's being done here in our own backyard, as well as provide a platform from which we can examine the trends, qualities, and idiosyncrasies of contemporary art within specific geographical areas and compare them to our own.

This three-state-region exhibit has no defined expectation for type, media, or style of work to be considered or selected. THIS IS AN OPEN CALL. Submissions can range from the most traditional to the most conceptual or experimental. The only criteria for entry is that works must qualify as works of visual art in the broadest sense of the term made by artists currently living in Ohio, Kentucky, or Indiana.
