The Pierro Gallery presents
Pop Up Gallery, an Open Community Exhibit:
My Sense of Place
Call for Art:
My Sense of Place
A community addendum to the exhibition, A Sense of Place: Kiki and Seton Smith
Sisters Kiki and Seton Smith return to the town they grew up in for a tribute exhibition of their distinguished artwork at Seton Hall’s Walsh Gallery in South Orange, NJ. The show, A Sense of Place: Kiki and Seton Smith examines the question, “How does place irrevocably impact our sense of self?” Kiki Smiths drawings and prints look to the natural world to understand the relationship between place and identity on a symbolic level. Seton’s large-scale photographs look to the built environment to convey associations by moving within and navigating through space.
This call for digital submissions asks, what is your sense of place?
- Make a work of art, take photo of place that is truly yours, or write a few lines about your sense of place.
- Take a digital photo of your submission
- Participants should include their name and title of the work in the body of the email
- Email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Subject line: My Sense of Place
Deadline October 15, 2016
Selected images will be displayed in student/community pop-up galleries and at the Pierro Gallery
All images will be on view in an on-line exhibition.
Some ideas to get you started:
- Consider the relationship between place and identity on a symbolic level.
- Explore the psychological and/or emotional issues that come into understanding the self and the manner in which place impacts a defining characteristic of identity.
- Where do you find your ‘own place’?
- What does it look like?
- Does it manifest itself in a real space?
- Is it more symbolic in representing their sense?
- How would you create a representation of your own place?
