Artist Calls- Spiritual Tribes: Reforming Families

Deadline: 11-02-2012

How can faith and fellowship generate kinship and camaraderie, causing us to rethink definitions of family that transcend blood and lineage? How can we consider the social, rather than biological aspects of family? How do common belief systems constitute shared experience, which can be as connective as DNA? CARE will exhibit selected art that deals with this theme of faith and family, newly envisioned.

Selected art will be exhibited at the Doug Adams Gallery, located inside Walter Ratcliff’s celebrated neo-gothic Holbrook Building on the campus of Pacific School of Religion. The exhibition will be held in conjunction with the Earl Lectures, hosted biennially by Pacific School of Religion. See for more information.

Eligible Media:
Artwork to be considered may include two-dimensional framed works on paper, canvas, or board, oil or acrylic paintings, photographs, lithograph or digital prints, drawings, collage, mixed media, or wall-mounted sculpture.

What to Submit:
The work will be juried by jpeg images submitted on a CD. Artists may submit a maximum of 5 images. Each CD must be labeled with the artist’s name and accompanied by a typed image list including the artwork’s title, medium, date, and dimensions. Digital images must be numbered to correspond with the artwork information list. Please include weight of wall-mounted sculpture.

Send your CD and image list to: Carin Jacobs, Director, CARE, 1798 Scenic Ave., Berkeley, CA 94709.

Deadline: 5:00 p.m. on Friday, November 2, 2012
