**This Show is open format. The pieces Artists choose to submit will be excepted, after the gallery reviews the entries. **
Curator and special guest speaker – Natasha Ria El- Scari
For this show, artists are encouraged to submit their best Visual Art, Sculpture, Ceramics and Photography that best describe to them the theme “This Land was Made for You and Me.” Open to all mediums of art and photography.
We live in a land that is diverse with natural landscapes and with the people who inhabit it. Beautiful cultures from around the world, have found their home in America. This land is also full of different climates and terrain – From mountains peaked with snow, to white sand beaches, rolling plains and great lakes, deserts and volcanoes and Alaskan wilderness. On a city bus in any bustling city, you might hear up to 20 different languages at one time. Elegant Mosques, Beautiful Churches, Peaceful Temples, Ornate Synagogues….All religions living right next to each other. Hues of skin like a rainbow of coloration, each celebrating who they are and where their ancestors came from or the region that their culture has always called home. In our growing nation, with each of the statements above, there is also strife – from the long history of displacement and mistreatment of indigenous peoples to internal strife between races and religions to environmental concerns with oil rigs and pipelines. The United States of America is a young, growing nation showing both love, light and the darkness – how we choose to live, treat one another and take care of our land will set the precedence for the years to come. May we all come together in unity and work to heal our scars while celebrating the majesty that is the United States that we call home.
For this show, we are looking for Landscape artists and photographers to submit pieces that highlight the United States. Perhaps some artists will show our bustling cities or quiet prairie’s. Others may choose the mountains, oceans, lakes and farms.
We are looking for artists and photographers to show cultural unity and love – celebrating our diverse cultures and how much we can learn from one another. Show us the beauty of this amazing land and show us where we need to protect it. Show the land for all that we are, all that we are not and all that we hope to be. Let this show bring unity, beauty, questions, and above all love and hope for the generations to come!
