PORTALS

Juried Photo Exhibition at Summit Artspace on Tusc

September 28-November 16

A portal is a way into, out of, or between places, people, or things. A doorway, a gate, a knothole, a tunnel, a tear in fabric, a window, an incision. These are all portals, both literally and metaphorically, that frame, isolate, reveal, or add a new dimension to the image. For this show we are looking for photographs that use these devices and others to create arresting and thought-provoking images. People may or may not be included in these photographs. All capture methods and processes are welcome.

Poe’s Garden

Oct 18 – Nov 9, 2019

Call for Literary Art

Edgar Allan Poe—his writings, mystique, life and death—has inspired visual and literary art  across the globe for over a century. Summit Artspace often sees among local artists a fascination with the mysterious, unearthly, Gothic, and grotesque.

Poe’s Garden is a new exhibit that invites artists from Summit, Portage, Cuyahoga, Medina and Stark counties to submit high-quality literary art that investigates the wide-ranging potential of written words to thrill and astonish, to awaken delight and dread in the viewer or listener.

The accepted work will be the artist’s creation of new, mysterious, or secret realms that offer fantasies of the unknown or distortions of the known, that explore past, present, or futuristic realities through a creative yet skewed lens. Literary art will be judged on its power to sustain mystery, leaving the garden gate open to imagination, wonder, and even a little fear.

Written work must be submitted in a separate pdf file, typed and double-spaced.

Please do not include your name on this PDF file. Your work will be tagged to your name by Summit Artspace staff.

Poetry limited to 50 lines and short stories are limited to 1,000 words.

Judging is by blind jury. Submissions that include the author’s name or exceed the word/line count will be disqualified.

Deadline for Entry:  September 23, 2019 Midnight or when we have received 200 entries

Call for Visual Art 

Edgar Allen Poe—his writings, his mystique, his life and his death—has inspired visual and literary art across the globe for over a century. Summit Artspace often sees among local artists a fascination with the mysterious, the unearthly, the Gothic and the grotesque, the fantasy of the unknown and the distortion of the known.

A new show entitled, Poe’s Garden, invites artists from Summit, Portage, Cuyahoga, Medina and Stark to submit high quality art that leads the imagination to pull back a curtain from the darkness and investigate the unsettling and fantastic places our minds can go.

Poe’s Garden will be a place where the deliberate, wide-ranging variety of visual art will thrill, astonish, create dread and awaken and provoke the viewer with images, imagined worlds and artistic technique. The accepted work will be the artist’s creation of new, mysterious or secret realms or the exploration of past, present or futuristic realities through a creative yet skewed lens. Art will be judged on its power to sustain mystery, leaving the garden gate open to imagination, wonder and even a little fear.
