(New)Void: A Call for Works About the Unknown - OH Deadline: May 7, 2019. The Cincinnati based non-profit arts organization and gallery, Manifest, invites visual artists and designers to submit works that in some way represent, either through subject, form, or content, the concept, image, or feeling of the Unknown, Uncertainty, or Void. Uncertainty is inevitable. It is the dark matter making up the large portion of our perception and experience of being. The unknown remains as much the realm of learners as it is of the uneducated - it defines both, and us all, in ways we may often find uncomfortable, or revealing of a depth of humanity, (or humility) - our least common denominator - often left dormant in living a modern life. All types of visual art in the broadest sense are welcome, including traditional and non-traditional approaches in any media, and any subject, realistic, non-objective, abstract, conceptual, etc. $40 entry fee.
