WEATHERED

An International Call for Works About Wear or Signs of Time Passing

Manifest Creative Research Gallery and Drawing Center   /   Deadline: 11/15/19

Download in PDF Format

The Cincinnati based non-profit arts organization and gallery, Manifest, invites visual artists to submit works which in some way address or reflect the theme of weathered.

The Japanese concept of wabi-sabi includes the appreciation for the ingenuous integrity of natural objects and processes. Time wears all things. Literally taken weathering is an aspect of the elements, but not without time. Wind, rain, sun, fire, and ice, and even mechanical means, transform everything. Weathering then is the process by which things in our world, and the world itself, are in the process of always becoming. In appreciating such processes one becomes aware of the signs of surviving age, stress, life, the toll of an ordeal or accomplishment, and existence itself. Through weathering a compelling narrative unfolds.

Artists are encouraged to take a broadly creative view in interpreting the theme as it applies to their work. Submissions can range from the most traditional realism to the most conceptual, abstract, or experimental.
