BOUNDARIES
We cordially invite you to contribute to our upcoming exhibit Boundaries at Confluence Gallery in Twisp, WA.
The show will open on April 18, 2020, and run through May 30, 2020.

SUMMARY
Boundaries can be real or symbolic and can divide us or protect us. While they may be firm and impenetrable, they can also be breached – by invitation, intrusion, or invasion. They may be healthy, hurtful, protective, or oppressive. We invite artists to explore boundaries in all their manifestations – literal, figurative, geographic, personal – and to ruminate on how boundaries have protected or burdened them. We welcome all interpretations and works of art, both representational and non-representational, that encompass the serious, thoughtful, playful, and provocative.
Number of pieces to submit: Up to 4

RULES
EACH PIECE MUST BE…
Your own original work.
Available for sale.
Created in the last 3 years.
Any size.
Never previously shown in the Methow Valley area.

Both 2-D and 3-D works accepted.

PLEASE NOTE…
The Exhibit Curators have the right to refuse work, even after work is delivered to the gallery, if it does not contribute to the direction, cohesiveness, or available space of the show, or does not follow the parameters set forth above. We are looking for high-quality execution and thoughtful content that contribute to the vision of the show as stated above.
