Call to artists - Nashville Public Library. Deadline Jan 14, 2008

Call to artists: submissions welcome through January 14 for Works with Words show

Nashville Public Library is pleased to invite artists living in Tennessee to submit artworks created between 2003 and 2008 to be considered for an exhibition titled "Works with Words." Deadline for submissions is January 14, 2008. The juried exhibition, March 15 - June 22, 2008, will be located in the first floor Art Gallery at the Main Library, and carries with it a $1000 purchase award for one piece to be selected by the library for its permanent collection.

The narrative tradition is part and parcel of Tennessee culture - from legendary tales to allegorical sermons to the lament of the blues, this is storytelling country. "Works with Words" invites Tennessee artists to tell their story through text and images. Artworks featured in this exhibition will represent a broad range of ways that text can be used in works of art. The Library Art Gallery is open to library users of all ages, so the subject matter should be appropriate for the general public. Work will be juried for artistic merit, creativity, original concept, and integration of text and image. Nashville Public Library reserves the right not to exhibit any work not consistent with the images provided for jury.
