Recognizing the power of collective creativity, Crooked Tree Arts Center in Traverse City, Michigan, is seeking original works of art for the exhibition One, Together.
Though the act of making art is often thought of as individual and solitary, many artists rely on a regular exchange of ideas with fellow artists and mentors in order to keep their creative practice going. Many more artists even work collaboratively to create their work. Beyond human relationships, some artists even consider the materials as collaborators. This exhibition aims to explore collaboration, collectivity, and togetherness through creative practice.
Artists are encouraged to consider the theme broadly and creatively.
Possible approaches to the theme include:
- Artwork created collectively by more than one artist
- Artwork that encourages participation
- Artwork exploring concepts of togetherness or collaboration
- A creative practice that relies on assistance by or collaboration with multiple participants
All media are eligible for entry. Artists working and residing in the United States, 18 years and older, are eligible for entry.
The exhibition will be on display in Traverse City’s Carnegie Galleries, September 28 - November 13, 2020.
