Call for Submissions: Tightrope Exhibition

DEADLINE : 4th February, 2018

Pine Rivers Art Gallery is seeking artists to submit applications for a 2018 group exhibition, Tightrope.

Artists are invited to respond to the following text:

Like walking on a tightrope, the environmental story can swing from great wins to enormous challenges, trying to balance the selfish with the sustainable.

With oceans warming, icecaps melting, carbon rising, genetically modified crops, deforestation and increasing population is there any good news for the environment? There is: we have solar power, wind farms, recycling, biodegradable plastics and species brought back from extinction.

What do artists do with all of this information? …often they make something beautiful.

Tightrope will be exhibited at the Pine Rivers Art Gallery from 5 May 2018 until 4 August 2018. Expressions of interest close 11.59pm 4 February 2018.
