“It requires a very unusual mind to undertake the analysis of the obvious.”
– Alfred North Whitehead

We challenge ourselves to seek out the UNUSUAL against a backdrop of normal, commonplace and consistency. What stands out? What seems odd? This can speak to the freak, celebrate the alternate identity or just the thing that catches the eye where the rest did not. What happens when “normal” is placed in a new environment or position? Consider unusual points of view or unusual artistic media. Exercise your unusual artist’s mind and imagination.

Creativity with everything is always encouraged. We are asking for a maximum of 3 pieces per artist. Multiple artworks from a series are encouraged. Artist’s statement is important. Please include an artist’s statement that tells what drives each work or describes your journey (100 words or less). You may also provide a separate artist’s biography or general statement (75 words or less). Note that brevity fits better on the wall tags!

  • All 2D (wall mounted) or 3D mediums will be considered.
  • While there is not a size limit, priority will be given to work that is 432 square inches or less for for each piece, (ie. 18×24), including frame, due to the limited wall space.
  • Any subject matter will be considered.
  • Please inquire early about special display needs.
  • This is a curated show with limited space. Not all submissions will be accepted.
