Calls & Opportunities for Artists

CALL FOR ENTRIES: Nature in the Balance

We are living in a pivotal era for our planet, with unprecedented pollution and pesticide use as well as the increasing frequency of weather extremes due to climate change contributing to more forest fires, floods, and droughts.
With the state of Earth itself hanging in a balance and the continuation of our own species and countless others at stake, what are we fighting for and how is that illustrated in our art? What are some of the solutions for achieving a future where nature and humanity can coexist harmoniously? How can we promote a more symbiotic relationship with the living world around us? How can we better strive to live as part of our respective ecosystems rather than apart from them? Ponder these sentiments, and in a few weeks we will send a recorded piece of music written and performed by the cellist Miranda Henne to inspire you further.
We invite all artists, in any medium, to submit work that focuses on our experiences of current environmental issues and what you envision as a more balanced future with nature.
Call for Art open to visual art, music, writing, performance, music, dance and other forms of art. Selected works will be exhibited at the Arlington Center for the Arts hallway gallery with a live performance by Miranda Henne. (Arlington Center for the Arts and the Town of Arlington are not responsible for artworks exhibited)
