OPEN CALL 2018
In 2018, DELVE will be hosting Gatherings on the east coast and we want to highlight artists whose work fits our theme: Creating Change.
DELVE Gatherings are rooted in the desire to build a strong, supportive community around art, artists and contemporary issues. The theme we will be exploring this year is Creating Change. Quiet or loud, social practice to solo studio painting, emerging to established, an artist’s voice is crucial to highlighting and synthesizing our human experience. We are interested in the critical eye and what it reveals, whether it’s a subtle visual pun or a loud, public proclamation. Art that comes from personal experience or a sense of civil responsibility resonates strongly, and has the power to activate society and potentially reimagine its structure.
At our Gatherings and online via our blog and social media, we’ll be sharing the work of artists who don’t separate their everyday realities from their art making, and in turn use their own artistic language to communicate in the best way they can. By sharing their processes, histories and ideas, it’s possible to educate and inspire others to take action and cultivate change in their communities.
If your work resonates with our mission, please fill out the form below and we'll contact you if selected. Submission is free. Thanks for your hard work.
