Art Inter/National, Here and Abroad 2012

Deadline: November 1, 2011 (POSTMARK) OR (EMAIL)

Art Inter/National, Here and Abroad 2012

Box Heart Gallery
Pittsburgh, PA
January 10 - February 4, 2012

"Art Inter/National Exhibition" combines artists from across the United States and around the world in an exhibition that considers spaces and how it impacts the creative process.

The basis for selection in the "Art Inter/National Exhibition" is sensitive to the diversity of work submitted; Box Heart Gallery strives to recognize that artists make art for different reasons and from different experiences. Box Heart looks closely for works that convey evidence of personal creative explorations and artistic commitment that directly relate to the purpose of the exhibition. A large part of determining the artist's commitment to the exhibition's theme rests solely on their ability to convey this evidence through the artist statement. The execution of the art work - as related to the artist's intention - is then considered. The depth to which an artist's work both reflects and enhances their vision determines a "Best of Show" nomination.

Art Inter/National is a celebration of artistic expression from all over the world. It's an exhibition that displays how the space one occupies both influences and guides the creative process. Box Heart encourages diversity in the media used to create the work, in the artists and his/her interpretation of Art Inter/National. There are no limits or boundaries, no categories or types. Box Heart is looking for expressions in art that are not only cultivated, but also created because of each artist's place on this earth.

One artist will receive the Best of Show Award. This artist is awarded Box Heart "Artist of the Year" and receives their own Solo Exhibition in the 2013 Exhibition Year. This includes Gallery Representation with Box Heart Gallery.
