Art from Art: A Challenge in Self Reflection Call to Artists

“Art from Art: A Challenge in Self-Reflection” - Call for Art

Show Origins:
The concept for ‘Art from Art’ stemmed from an interaction between ZACC Operations Director Heather Stockton, and long-time ZACC studio holder and art therapist, Dr. Kim Brown Campbell. Kim had just returned from Heather’s latest art show, and the two discussed Heather’s work while Kim shared some photos she had taken of the show. The photos were beautiful. Kim’s photos showed an intimate viewership of the paintings and captured the development of her relationship and understanding of Heather’s works. Zooming-in on tiny areas of rather large paintings, Kim’s images had become new pieces of art in and of themselves, and a concept was born.

A Challenge in Self-Reflection:
Due to limitations caused by COVID, we ask that for the first ever ‘Art from Art’ challenge you take a second look at a piece of art that you have personally created, and which you can easily physically access. Take a closer look at that art. Touch it. Spend time with it. Turn it upside down and see how it changes. When you’re ready, take a photograph that captures your existing art from your new perspective; creating art from art.
--

Requirements for Submitting Art:
• The original source art MUST be a piece that you have created.
• This is a photography project; final works must be a printed photograph, with no additional embellishments.
• To promote accessibility, photos must be taken with a cellular device set to the “Square” format.
• Your final photograph can show no more than 25% of your original piece of art.
• Final prints must be 12”h x 12”w with full bleed, and ready to hang.
• Pieces can be printed on photo paper (must be framed with hanging wire), metal (must have hanging wire), or stretched canvas (must have hanging wire).
• If using a frame, the frame should be no larger than 2”w for a max total dimension of 14”h x 14”w.
• Final pieces MUST be ready to hang on a hook.
• Final pieces must be dropped off to the ZACC by July 22, 2020.

When you sign-up to participate in the show, you’ll be asked to include an image of your original source art, which will appear alongside your artist statement & biography during the exhibition.
