Up from the floors, out of the walls, down from the rafters, winding, reaching, arching, grasping — from ants to kings, we love to build.

Both man-made and organic structures may be featured, although no materials subject to deterioration within a 30 day window will be accepted. Possible materials might include wood, metal, wire, fabric, floss, hard trash, etc. There are no size restrictions; however, space will be a consideration.

Please notify us if there are any display restrictions (i.e. not suitable for exterior sites). Both 2-D and 3-D work will be considered. All US artists and artist teams are welcome to apply.

Deadline: June 4, 2016 @ 12pm

Gallery Luperca in Nashville, TN is seeking submissions for TRUMPED UP: Art About The Donald

We’ve all witnessed the spectacle that is the 2016 presidential primary race. It’s been a befuddling circus of televised debates, twitter arguments, suspect polling data, and tiny hands that has left most Americans asking, “How did the Donald make it this far?” As the primary season draws to a close, it’s time for artists to focus their keen sensibilities on the Republican frontrunner in order to reveal just how strange, troubling and ridiculous this picture is fast becoming. Portraits, cartoons, lampoons, bling, stupid hats, #hairgoals…you name it…if it relates to Trump, it has a place in this exhibition.!call-for-entries/e26my
