Floyd Center for the Arts announces an open exhibition on the theme of community. Community is a broad topic and the Center hopes to receive a broad range of entries – including everything from traditional paintings, photographs, or sculptures by individual artists to collaborative works. Other forms of art may be exhibited as well, like digital media, performance, installations and creative writings; however, these artworks will be accepted at the discretion of the gallery committee. Community groups can work together, or an artist might work with them to create the completed piece. Artists can also design a project that needs the community for it to be completed.
Since this exhibition is about and for the community, everyone can participate. There are no age restrictions, and the work can be by professionals or amateurs – groups or individuals. The submissions can be for exhibition inside the Hayloft Gallery, or for somewhere in the building, or for the grounds of the Center for the Arts.
There will be no fee for exhibitors to participate, as The Center wants to include all who are interested regardless of financial ability; however donations from those who are able to donate will be greatly appreciated because exhibitions typically are funded by application fees.
The gallery committee members will make every attempt to include all entries, but they will not accept work that does not physically fit in the exhibition space or that, in their judgment, is inappropriate for the theme of the exhibition.
