It is the last sequential step in the process of moving forward. Without the final act of letting go, the things we hold on to destructively manifest in other ways and at other times, and lead to our eventual, and often infinite, undoing. The things we must eventually let go of (people, events, beliefs, etc.) are as numerous as the ways we find to do so. For the creative-minded, resolution is often found buried in the nuances of work.<br /> This exhibition seeks art in all mediums about the many facets of &#39;letting go&#39;. It can deal in directness or abstraction about the things which we must let go, the resulting tangible work used to find finality, or the exoneration realized in the act of releasing what we can no longer bare to carry as burdens.&nbsp;</span></span></span><br /> &nbsp;</p> <p><span style="color:#000000"><span style="font-family:georgia,serif"><span style="font-size:18px"><strong>This is a national Call for Art</strong><br /> In accordance with the artist-based vision of Things Feel Heavy, in support of the artistic community, the show will offer a $150.00 Best in Show public juried Prize to award the chosen exhibiting artist[s] for his/her exceptional work and creativity in interpretation of the concept from funds garnered through submission fees.&nbsp;</span></span></span><br /> &nbsp;</p> <p><span style="font-family:georgia,serif"><span style="font-size:18px"><span style="color:#000000">For submission guidelines and to apply to the show, please visit the Things Feel Heavy website link below, and help spread the word by sharing with fellow artists.</span><br /> <br /> <a href="" style="color: rgb(17, 85, 204);" target="_blank"><span style="color:#000000"></span></a><br /> <span style="color:#000000">For questions please contact Anna at&nbsp;</span><a href="" style="color: rgb(17, 85, 204); font-family: " target="_blank"><span style="color:#000000"></span></a></span></span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Fri, 16 Mar 2018 09:43:44 -0700 Lumen Prize - Call for Entries | Posted March 15, 2018 <p>&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align:center"><span style="font-family:georgia,serif"><span style="font-size:18px"><img alt="No automatic alt text available." src=";oe=5B4BFA40" style="width:800px" /></span></span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><span style="font-family:georgia,serif"><span style="font-size:18px">An international open call for artists engaged with digital technology.
