A call to artists:
"Revealing the Invisible"

Invisibility Masks Multitude of Feelings -- Courier-Tribune Coverage of "Revealing the Invisible," September 2-October 17, Gallery 101, Randolph Arts Guild

* * *

Share your vision of invisibility for an exhibit at the Randolph Arts Guild’s Moring Arts Center in downtown Asheboro.

Most people need to feel connected to and valued by others – whether by family, friends, colleagues within the work place or society in general. But haven’t we all experienced times when we have felt disregarded, unappreciated or even ignored – in other words, invisible?

And if we haven’t felt it personally, we’re probably aware of others who have. The exhibit, entitled “Revealing the Invisible,” seeks to generate a creative response to the concept of invisibility. Show dates will be Sept. 2-Oct. 17. The exhibit will open Sept. 2 with a reception.

The project is open to all artists of all ages and artist teams are eligible to apply, including teams of artists from multiple disciplines. Randolph County and Asheboro school students are encouraged to participate.

A community “mosaic” composed of all the artworks will be created to celebrate the community, the individual and the value of diversity.

Works should be 2-dimensional, but a variety of media will be considered. Examples of media include, but are not limited to: painting, drawing, collage and photography. The format for all 2-dimensional artwork is 12 inches-by-12 inches, with a half-inch border around the image extending to the outer edges of the paper or canvas. If you need a larger format to express your idea it is suggested that you team up with other artists and combine your space.

Artists may include their name or a statement concerning the concept within the body of the artwork.

All artists must secure a 3-inch-by-3-inch tag onto the back of the artwork with the title of your work, your name, address, phone number and e-mail address.

Artists may deliver work to the Randolph Arts Guild, 123 Sunset Ave., Asheboro, on Thursday, August 28, from 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

Artworks can also be mailed and must be received by August 28. Send to Attention: Invisible Man Project, Randolph Arts Guild, 123 Sunset Ave., Asheboro, NC 27203.
