Northfield Arts Guild: "WWW."

Deadline: May 2, 2011 (RECEIVE)

Northfield Arts Guild

Northfield, MN
June 29, 2011 to August 6, 2011

Northfield Arts Guild in Northfield, Minnesota, in partnership with the Northfield Public Library and Art on Water Gallery, is hosting a fiber and textile exhibit which brings the work of Upper Midwest fiber and textile artists to Northfield in the summer of 2011. Entitled "WWW.", the exhibit explores via artist interpretations how communications technology has influenced contempory life.

The theme of this exhibit: If art is an interpretation of reality, then how might art examine the profound, life-changing reality of contemporary communications technology? The web has revolutionized not only how we communicate, but how we process time and experience. The conclusions of social scientists on this issue raise now-familiar themes ranging from deeply altered human relations to limitless information which expands human potential.

Diverse interpretations are anticipated and encouraged from participating artists.

Entry details and an application form are found at

Entries are juried and there are cash awards for winning submissions.
