The Infinite Undoing

Call For Art:

 

Things Feel Heavy and Galleri 2987 present: 

The Infinite Undoing

.

This is a Call for Art about ‘letting go’; the ways in which we let go, that which we hold onto, our inability to let go and its resulting affect, and the absolution in the act itself.  

 

‘Letting go’ is the final gesture after acceptance.  It is the last sequential step in the process of moving forward.  Without the final act of letting go, the things we hold on to destructively manifest in other ways and at other times, and lead to our eventual, and often infinite, undoing.  The things we must eventually let go of (people, events, beliefs, etc.) are as numerous as the ways we find to do so.  For the creative-minded, resolution is often found buried in the nuances of work.

 

This exhibition seeks art in all mediums about the many facets of ‘letting go’.  It can deal in directness or abstraction about the things which we must let go, the resulting tangible work used to find finality, or the exoneration realized in the act of releasing what we can no longer bare to carry as burdens.  

 

 

This is a national Call for Art.

All mediums accepted.

In accordance with the artist-based vision of Things Feel Heavy, in support of the artistic community, the show will offer a $150.00 Best in Show Prize to award the chosen exhibiting artist[s] for his/her exceptional work and creativity in interpretation of the concept from funds garnered through submission fees.
