ALTERNATIVE ENVIRONMENTS Open Call Exhibition opens at Waterfall Arts
April 6 @ 10:00 am - May 10 @ 5:00 pm
Waterfall Arts’ annual Open Call exhibition will again take over its Clifford and Corridor Galleries this spring. ”Alternative Environments” will be on view from April 5 to May 10 with an opening reception on April 5 from 5 to 7 PM. The reception is free and open to the public.
The annual open call show at Waterfall Arts is an opportunity for artists to participate in the creative dialogue springing from the 2019 exhibition theme “Alternative Environments.” ”Alternative Environments” will display works of art that explore alternative or unconventional spaces. What might it look like or feel like to explore an alternative of unconventional space through art? What happens when unusual perspectives are applied to depictions of familiar surroundings? What might a human-made environment look like in the future? Artists near and far were invited to explore alternative environments, whether natural, mythical, fantastical, or simply unfamiliar.
Waterfall Arts’ annual open call shows provide an opportunity for emerging artists as well as established artists to show their work in a gallery setting. For some artists, participation in the open call show is their first interaction with Waterfall Arts. Many artists who participate in the show go on to take or teach classes and workshops at Waterfall Arts.
The ”Alternative Environments” exhibition will open on Friday, April 5 with a reception from 5:00 to 7:00PM. Waterfall Arts is located at 256 High Street in downtown Belfast. For more information, visit waterfallarts.org/open-call/ or call (207)-338-2222. Exhibitions at Waterfall Arts are made possible by the Onion Foundation, Morton Kelly Charitable Trust, and the Maine Arts Commission, an independent state agency supported by the National Endowment for the Arts.
Launched in 2000, Waterfall Arts is a community arts center that offers resources to students, professionals, and arts enthusiasts of all ages. Opportunities include classes, exhibitions, art events, performances, open community studios (clay, print, and darkroom photography), public art projects, and more.
