Wicked and Wise

Deadline: June 1, 2007 (Postmark)

Wicked and Wise
Clara M. Eagle Gallery
Murray State University
August 22 - September 20, 2007

For centuries myths, legends, and fairy tales have delighted the imagination with enchanted worlds where both the good and the wicked reside. These moral tales, rich in symbolism, social criticism, and dark humor--inspire fantastical visions with their colors, textures, and characters.

Wicked and Wise is an exhibition open to artists exploring issues common in traditional and contemporary tales including folklore, ghost stories, comic books, urban legends, and tall tales. Notions of the courageous heroine--the evil villain, deception, betrayal, magic, adventure, and everlasting hope are just a few ideas open for investigation.

The Clara M. Eagle Gallery at Murray State University in Murray, KY will host the exhibition. All members of Mid America Print Council -MAPC-are eligible to apply. (Membership form may accompany application).

Submissions may include work in any media. Artists are encouraged to be creative in their interpretation of the theme.

Each artist is limited to three entries. The work must be original, completed recently, and not previously shown in the Eagle Gallery.

Size restrictions: pieces must fit on a freight elevator, call for exact dimensions.

An artist statement will be requested from all accepted artists.

Fee: Non-refundable entry fee of $25.00 US per artist for three entries.
