CALL TO ARTISTS: ROOTS, FALL 2020
We are exploring the theme of ROOTS this fall (and BRANCHES in the spring). Primary themes will be the natural environment but also the ROOTS of women writing, and roots of sexism, racism, xenophobia, environmental conservation and destruction, etc. Other synonyms:
- ROOT: radicle · rhizome · rootstock · tuber · tap root · rootlet · radicel;
- CAUSE, source or origin: source · origin · starting point · seed · germ · beginnings · genesis · cause · reason · base · basis · foundation · bottom · seat · fundamental · core · nucleus · heart · kernel · nub · essence · fons et origo · fountainhead · wellspring · fount · radix;
- FAMILY, ethnic, or cultural origins, especially as the reasons for one’s long-standing emotional attachment to a place or community: origins · beginnings · family · ancestors · predecessors · heritage · birthplace · native land · motherland · fatherland · homeland · native country
The focus of this art show will be on our Community Artists, who will be featured mainly in the SheShed and outdoors. Indoor artists will be by invitation only. Indoor activities will be more limited due to health concerns.
