Secondary Meanings : Figural Diptychs Call for Entries

30 October, 2018 to 01 February, 2019




This issue of PoetsArtists and the accompanying exhibition seeks the “multi-panel” artwork of all artists, regardless of age, race, creed, color or gender. Included within the call are diptychs, triptychs and polytychs (images with more than three panels). Acceptable media includes painting, prints, drawing, and photography. In addition, sculpture is included within the call if it includes two or more different pieces that are thematically related and make sense when exhibited together. In all cases (both two-dimensional work as well as sculpture), it is a requirement that a human figure must be prominently depicted in one or more of the panels or pieces. Also, it is a requirement of the call that all submitted art be new work. “New work” means that the work may not be previously exhibited or shown, whether on the Internet or otherwise. Any work that appears on the Internet prior to publication by PoetsArtists, whether Facebook, Instagram or any other social media site or webpage, will be disqualified. Also, painting over photographs is not acceptable.

All artwork must be available to sell throughout the time-frame of the exhibition at the Zhou B Art Center in Chicago.
