Glen Echo Park Partnership for the Arts and Culture announces its first juried online art exhibition!
 

DETAILS:

 

Glen Echo Park Partnership for Arts and Culture announces its first Call for Artists for a juried online art exhibition! Our theme, Moving Forward, aims to capture and highlight the many voices of the future, and to inspire hope and transformative change in response to the COVID-19 public health crisis. These unprecedented times provide a significant moment for each of us to envision the possibilities that await us in our futures. What have we learned to appreciate during this time? How are we innovating as we adapt to the pandemic paradigm? What keeps us inspired? What colors are in our “new normal”? 

 

As we diversify the way we present artists’ work at Glen Echo Park, this online showcase provides an opportunity to challenge physical art gallery norms as we introduce our new online gallery. With an online show, we are able to open up this Artist Call nationally, to broaden our art network to include artists across the country, and to extend the Glen Echo Park Partnership community beyond the Washington, DC metro area. The exhibition gives our audiences a chance to experience, engage with, share, and support a wide range of artists. This call is open to artists 16 years of age or older, working in all traditional and non-traditional 2D and 3D media, including sculpture.Check out our new online gallery here.

 

Guest Juror: 

 

Zoma Wallace is an independent curator, published art writer, and artist from Washington, DC. She served the District of Columbia’s municipal government as its first curator for nine years while on staff at the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities. While there, she contemporized the city-owned collection of fine art, began a robust practice of producing city-funded exhibitions for the specific benefit of District residents, and developed a new grant program to support emerging curators with funding and gallery space to realize compelling ideas. At the close of 2018, she decided to work independently in order to more effectively collaborate with artists to produce transformative and visionary projects. Zoma is an alumna of Spelman College, holds a Master of Fine Arts in painting from Howard University, and is currently working towards a doctorate in Art Theory & Philosophy at the Institute for Doctoral Studies in the Visual Arts (IDSVA).
