Call to Artists - The Gallery at Mount Ida College

This is a call to artists for an exhibition titled Wild life/Wildlife.

How is your wild life interpreted? Life as a human condition: its structure, wildness, rawness and crudeness or wildlife of the natural world: its order and disorder, incivility and savageness. How does the artist express the essence of Wild Life / Wildlife as a paradox, the perfect and the imperfect, order and disorder? Does the word wildlife still hold its original meaning or has human interaction destroyed what is wild?

All media eligible. We will look at up to 10 images from each artist. Please send a list of works with the submission in detail including; title, date, medium, and dimensions. Also, please include your name, address, telephone/cell and email address for contact. We will contact you by email by December 14, 2007.

Slides and digital images should be clearly marked with your name and the name of the piece along with the corresponding number on the list of works. For slides include a red dot in the lower left corner to help us orient your images properly. Send the requested materials no later than November 30, 2007 (post mark) with a SASE for return.

Dates for the run of the exhibition are March 25 - May 4, 2008 with a reception on Thursday, April 3 from 5:00 - 7:00pm with an artist's talk at 6:00pm.

The exhibition will be curated by Professor and artist John Tricomi (http://www.mountida.edu/sp.cfm?pageid=313&id=248), and Associate Professor, Gallery Director and artist Kathleen Driscoll (http://www.mountida.edu/sp.cfm?pageid=313&id=101)
