FOLKSY: Cultural Traditions & Outside Visions
April 26 – September 22, 2019
ANNMARIE SCULPTURE GARDEN & ARTS CENTER
In Association with the Smithsonian Institution
Dowell (Solomons), Maryland, USA

DEADLINE to apply: March 3, 2019

Join us as we explore the wide realm of folk art, outsider art, and visionary art – and other artistic expressions that are often situated outside the world of mainstream fine arts. This exhibit invites artists to submit works that highlight the unconventional, the authentic, and the self-taught. What materials and perspectives are artists exploring? How are artists blurring the lines between fine and folk, mainstream and outsider? What cultural traditions, personal histories, or social commentaries inspire their work? What identities and issues are finding a voice? How does this work challenge our ideas and address the human condition? These and other ideas and expressions will find a home in this exciting new exhibit opportunity. All media welcome; small to large-scale; indoor and outdoor. Cash awards to be presented.
