Emerging Voices

a 60 day art exhibit amplifying creative

expressions about diverse experiences

in our community. 

Once Rising Voices, then Emerging, now Releasing...

 

Rusty and I have been using long view planning for complications and possibilities for an art exhibit during a pandemic. We have been constantly humbled and reminded that time and/or nature doesn’t work on our schedules.

 

We recognize that when *everything* seems urgent and important, the pauses, shifts and new directions are what really emerge... We’ve decided that due to very real unknowns we are individually and collectively carrying it is best to set free the idea of hosting two indoor art exhibits this fall.

 

We are gratefully releasing three years of planning, effort and spirit into the cosmos of “Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars.” Norman Vincent Peale

We thank you for your enthusiasm, energy and contributions - they have been greatly appreciated!

We wish you tenderness, connection and love,

 

Glenda Miles

All of us have been impacted by the year the world will never forget and we'd like to hold space for creative entries that may resonate with these two questions: 

 

What new world did you enter after 2020?

What new attention/s, priorities and/or alignments are showing up for you?

Who

Emerging Voices is a sixty (60) day traveling group art exhibit encouraging conversations and connections about diverse experiences in our community. Open to anyone who uses pronouns of "She/her/hers" and “They/their/theirs”.

Submission deadlines will be both firm and flexible for participants to join for 30 or 60 days of the exhibit. A participant cannot join mid month. However, an artist can submit after the opening in September and exhibit the following month in October.

To be considered for this exhibit, a creator’s statement must accompany each piece describing how the submission represents their personal journey. This information can be entered directly into the “Creator’s Statement”window or as an attachment by selecting "upload document."  These statements will be displayed with artwork.

What

In the spirit of community story telling the exhibit is non-juried with amateur and professional. Artists can submit up to three (3) pieces each. Artists can include a sale price or a “NFS” if item is not for sale. Art work will be displayed by hanging, on easels, tabletops or special displays.

All of us have been impacted by the year the world will never forget and we'd like to hold space for creative entries that may resonate with these two questions for the (re)launch:

 

What new world did you enter after 2020?

What new attention/s, priorities and/or alignments are showing up for you?
