FORT WORTH COMMUNITY ARTS CENTER IS PROUD TO PRESENT: Through a Scope 2019

DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION – September 1, 2019
EXHIBITION DATES: October 4 – October 23, 2019
RECEPTION: Friday, October 4, 2019

The Fort Worth Community Arts Center is proud to partner with the Fort Worth Zoo to present “Through a Scope 2019”, an exhibition promoting the importance of all life on this planet. Through an array of mixed media, we intend to shed light on the delicate balance of the ecosystem by addressing the importance of all species that live within it. To further address these complexities, we are designing a comprehensive educational component for all ages. The goal of this exhibition is to bring awareness, open dialogue and knowledge sharing about the current issues around conservation. To accomplish this, we will hold a panel discussion with educators from The Fort Worth Zoo to blend the artistic mind with a scientific approach to the subject. Our hope is to inspire people to take positive steps towards the stewardship for our planet.

CALL TO ARTISTS: National call to artists over the age of 18, open to all disciplines. We are looking for artwork that addresses life on earth with a focus on the wild kingdom. All media including oils, acrylics, pastels, watercolors, prints, drawings, mixed media, sculpture, video, installation, photography, and digital art. Through a Scope 2019 will occur in our premier, 3000 square foot, Front Gallery at The Arts Center. All artwork must be original and must not infringe upon any copyright or the rights of any person. This show will be juried by FWCAC’s Curator, Jonathan Levy.

PRIZES:
· Best in show wins $500
· Each piece displayed will be represented in Through a Scope 2019 exhibition catalog.

ABOUT US: Located at 1300 Gendy Street, the FWCAC is part of the most architecturally significant museum districts in the United States. The striking modern Herbert Bayer building (with a later O’Neil Ford addition) opened to the public in 1954 as home to one of the most prestigious and oldest collecting organizations in the state of Texas, the Modern Museum of Fort Worth. When, in 2002, the Modern moved down the street, the Fort Worth Community Arts Center opened. The building has exhibited world-class art and supported the performing arts for more than half a century. The Arts Council manages the FWCAC, provides leadership and funding to local arts organizations through our competitive Grants Program and administers the Fort Worth Public Art program.

SUBMISSION: Work will be juried from images submitted only through the gallery’s online submission. $20 submission fee for up to three pieces. Each additional submission will be $5 each. Artists who are aiming for the grand prize are encouraged to submit as many as possible. Images must be JPEGs with minimum width/height of 800 pixels, maximum size as 3MB. Make sure the file name corresponds with the title of the work and do not use spaces or special characters (!@$, etc) in the image file names. Video and audio files can be submitted through links. FWCAC reserves the right to reject inaccurately represented work, or incomplete submission.
