Maryland’s Eastern Shore has many beautiful vistas of sandy beaches and bucolic farm land, but it is also filled with suburban sprawl, strip malls and chicken houses. The art depicting our area often captures our picturesque beaches, birds, barns, and boats but rarely do we see images of the forgotten and overlooked spaces which are equally a part of this place. HERE/NOT HERE calls on artists to capture, explore, and depict those unscrubbed and often unseen places. We are looking for artwork that tells the stories not often told about the landscape and architecture that have shaped this place we call here. The liminal spaces, the tension zones, and the hap-hazard, slap-dash, crap-laps.
This call is open to all artists living and/or working within 150 miles of Salisbury, Maryland. We are open to all media from traditional to digital and experimental.
Artists may enter up to 3 works of art. A non-refundable entry fee of $15 is required of each applicant, regardless of number of works entered.
