Call for Art: The 700 Collection

Call for Art: The 700 Collection

 

By Katelyn Coyne

Ignite Studio at the Hamilton East Public Library in Fishers has opened a call for art for our next exhibit “The 700 Collection.” We are seeking art in a variety of mediums for this juried group exhibit, with cash awards for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place.

About “The 700 Collection”

The 700’s in the Dewey Decimal System is all about the Arts (with a little recreation thrown in.) Materials in this classification include oversized art books for your coffee table, thick volumes on art history, and tomes on architecture. In the stacks of the 700’s, readers can browse for information on both traditional mediums, such as painting and photography, and less traditional mediums, such as digital and graffiti art. You will find books on ikebana, visible mending and crochet taxidermy, as well. Show us any and all of these mediums and art forms for the upcoming exhibit: “The 700 Collection.”

If you would like to submit your artwork for consideration, please follow the submission guidelines below.

Deadline to submit is Tuesday, February 8, 2022.
