For centuries myths, legends, epics and moral tales have delighted the imagination with fantastical worlds constructed from both fact and fib. These stories– rich in symbolism, social criticism, and dark humor—are often passed down through generations and inevitably influence who we are and how we understand our world.

Tales They Told Us is an exhibition open to artists exploring issues common in traditional and contemporary tales including parables, folklore, ghost stories, comic books, urban legends, tall tales, and even news stories. Notions of the courageous hero(ine), the evil villain, deception, betrayal, gossip, magic, adventure, and everlasting hope are just a few ideas open for investigation.

There is no fee to enter. For complete submission guidelines visit http://www.lexingtonartleague.org/tales-they-told-us-call-for-entries.html
