Chasing Ghosts: Art that Pierces the Veil through remembrance, legacy, and beyond

All mediums and modes of expression are welcome. This call emphasizes the idea of revealing the unseen or the soul within a work of art.  The term ghost may be interpreted in many ways, and not necessarily meant to be a literal elucidation.  Does your process manifest an identity within your work that somehow speaks to the past?  What ghosts or parts of the past leave their mark on your work?  Is a legacy revealed through your work or your process? Is memory a vital vehicle of expression for you?  Do you inadvertently honor or flee from something in your past through your work? Verum Ultimum Gallery invites artists to divulge their talent within this expressive theme and haunt our haunt with your vision.

September 18, 2016 Please apply via CaFE: https://www.

Unconventional Materials (show dates: December 3, 2016 - February 23, 2017)

Where there is an idea, there is a way to express it. Where there is a material, there is a way to turn it into art. In our winter exhibition, the Children’s Museum of NH would like to challenge artists to transform unconventional materials into something beautiful, thought provoking or just plain fun!
We would like artists to show that they’re capable of something new and different. Almost anything is fair game, but there is a preference for industrial or man-made materials. We would prefer if artists use their materials in a way that transcends their original purpose, creating true art. The aim is to show materials that aren’t just unconventional, but to challenge the way people think about everyday objects.
