Pressing Pause: Living Life While Staying Put
Anxiety, stress, fear, boredom, panic are now quotidian, yet, we must keep living. We must adapt to unemployment or working from home, and do our best to take care of ourselves and others, pay our bills, make tentative plans for the future, and steal moments of joy throughout the day. How and what are you, the artist, creating in the time of quarantine? How is this new duality of life being expressed? How are these changes being expressed visually?
Submissions close Friday, May 15th at 5pm EST. Notification of winner will be announced on Tuesday, May 26th.
Artists will be selected based on creativity, artistic excellence, and relevance to the theme. A panel of curators will select the work and grant the winner $500 cash prize. The selected artist and their work will be featured on the Art House Productions’ website and social media for one month. Additionally the work will be displayed as part of Art House’s group show for the 30th Annual JCAST in October 2020. Artist will be responsible for delivery and pick up of their work.
