The spring exhibit will showcase multiples – a pair, diptych, triptych or group of pieces that relate to each other. Selected works will highlight the juxtaposition, contrast, comparison, expansion, connection and separation between the pieces. Jurors will be looking for submissions of two or more pieces that make statements that are both subtle and obvious, complementary and conflicting.
Spectrum is a juried exhibition of original, contemporary artwork in all media. Entries must have been created within the past two years and not previously exhibited at the Carriage Barn. Acceptable media includes painting, prints, drawing, photography and mixed media. In addition, sculpture that includes two or more pieces that are thematically related and make sense when exhibited together.
