THOUGHTFULLY AWAKE May 3 - June 7, 2019 The Suffolk Art League and Suffolk Art Gallery invite artists to submit up to 3 artwork for the juried exhibition Thoughtfully Awake, artwork that examines social issues and awareness. The media, in all forms, traditional, social, and electronic, is filled with stories of disparity. #MeToo, race relations, immigration, Equal Rights Amendment, the environment, and many more. Artists have always had unique ways to convey messages of injustice and consolation through their creative process. We invite artists to submit up to three artworks that examine social issues in ways that may help the viewer be more aware of the disparities in society - local, national or international. Helping them to be more Thoughtfully Awake. Download complete prospectus below.
