The Whatcom Museum is seeking submissions by artists working in 2-dimensional mediums for whom landscape serves as an important inspiration and motivation to their practice and aspects of their work. Submissions should evidence an investigation of contemporary art practices, and address our understandings of the Earth, climate change, and the evolving relationships of humanity to nature. Works range from traditional interpretations of the observed landscape to the metaphoric and spiritual manifestations of the landscape through image, language, and mapping of our response to nature and the world.
Exhibition space considerations preclude consideration of time-based and site-specific installations or performances.
