Writing on the Walls

Deadline: June 25, 2010 Due by 5pm EST

Writing on the Walls
Desotorow Gallery

Savannah, GA
July 16 to July 28, 2010

Theme: The act of writing a list, sending a personal letter and even passing a note have become few and far between in the digital age. An E-mail or a text message, however efficient, no longer hold that personal touch. Handwriting is so specific to an individual that this form of expression within itself seems to have been left behind by contemporary telecommunications. Writing style is dynamic: an unfinished work to be modified, revised, and shaped over a lifetime. Writing on the Walls examines and celebrates the personal idiosyncrasies of the art of handwriting through various mediums: letters, notes, grocery lists, and other organic print pieces that continues to exist despite today's increased use of digital methods. We invite you to join us in our exploration of the ever disappearing art of the written word.

Eligibility: This juried exhibition is open to national and international artists (professional, emerging, and student).

Media/Genre: Open to works of all genres and media.

Entry Fee: You may submit up to three pieces for a non-refundable entry fee of $20 The entry fee may be paid online or with cash, check, or money order.
