Call for Artists

Art & Soul: Soul Struck

Deadline to Enter: March 2, 2015

Juror: Christoph Heinrich, Director of the Denver Art Museum

as

Humanity has long deliberated over the definition and existence of the soul. Is it the essence of life, our true self or a moral compass? Perhaps it is nothing more than an emotional fervor. From immortality personified to allegorical contrivance, the soul resists a single definition. Juror selected artists utilize their chosen media to address these contradictory perspectives.

Eligibility: Art & Soul - Soul Struck is a biennial, national juried exhibition of original artwork open to artists that work in a wide variety of media. The exhibition is open to national artists at least 18 years of age. Eligible work is any original piece that correlates with the exhibit description and has been created over the course of 2013-2015 (no earlier than 2013). 2-D work must be framed, ready to hang and met the ASLD framing specifications and parameters (see below). Any 3-D work must include instructions for display.

In conjunction with the exhibition, Art Students League of Denver (ASLD) will host their biennial fundraising gala, ART&SOUL on April 18, 2015. The ART&SOUL gala is a ticketed fundraising event to support the mission and programming of ASLD. In addition to the juried art, select work from invited, ASLD-affiliated artists will be available for auction (one night only). In keeping with ASLD’s standards that artists are always paid for the work, juried and invited artists will not be asked to donate work and ASLD will receive a standard commission for any art work sales.

Take us around the block or on a ride in your imagination, we’re ready to go!

The Juror: Susan Froyd, Westword Arts and Culture Editor
