Artist Callouts

 

Dear Beechwood Artists,

 

This Spring we are exploring the theme "JOURNEYS" with three exciting events and we would love to show your work across all three! We invite you to participate.


Juror’s Statement:

In its barest form, a journey is a change over time. It can be psychological or physical, linear or circular. It may be voluntary or imposed, straightforward or circuitous, difficult, easy or both and may evoke a wide range of emotions. It can be short or long (or endless!). It may be forgotten over the years or have a lasting impact on your life in a big or small way.

The pieces you enter must refer to/reflect on/be a product of/have been created during/been inspired by a journey you’ve experienced that has made an impact on you/your life.
