Where I’m From

(Swainsboro, GA) - Gallery RFD seeks submissions for its upcoming exhibition titled Where I’m From.

Over the past two and a half years, Gallery RFD has had the pleasure of exhibiting artists and artwork from all over the globe, including over 300 cities, 40 states, and 20 countries. It is apparent that location influences an artist as much as anything, with subject and media being as diverse as the points of origin. This influx of geographical diversity begs the need to display visual representations of the places they are coming from. Gallery RFD seeks artwork for an exhibition titled Where I’m From, which will feature compositions that are either inspired by, in response to, or a documentation of the place you call home. Awards will be given for Best of Show and Juror’s Choice.

Submission deadline: June 25, 2009,11 p.m. (EST)
Juror: Ger Ger, multi-media artist from Berlin, Germany.

Sweet Escape: Interpreting Freedom in the Modern World

EXTENDED DEADLINE: MARCH 5, 2009

(Swainsboro, GA) - Gallery RFD seeks submissions for its upcoming exhibition titled Sweet Escape: Interpreting Freedom in the Modern World.

With one of America’s most significant inaugurations just behind us, the country in economic turmoil, and a multitude of wars being fought on foreign soil, freedom is not far from anybody’s mind. Not just in the political sense, for as tension rises we also seek creative escapes, and from that new ideas emerge. Gallery RFD’s upcoming exhibition, Sweet Escape, is about exploring liberty in any context. We request your views about political freedom, personal freedom, and creative freedom, interpreted into works of art.

Submission deadline: March 5, 2009, 4 p.m. (EST)
Juror: Lucian Perkins, photojournalist and two time Pulitzer prize winner.

Staged: The Constructed Photograph

(Swainsboro, GA) - Gallery RFD seeks submissions for its upcoming exhibition titled Staged: The Constructed Photograph.

Countless photographers discuss the concept of taking a picture vs. making a picture and arguments can be made for either one. Can the constructed image tell us something the found image cannot? Does a photograph that was captured in the heat of a moment comment more closely on society that an image that was thoughtfully composed to have the same effect? Gallery RFD seeks submissions of photographic works that have been created, arranged, and composed from the ground up in attempt to convey their own truths.

Submission deadline: Thursday, April 23, 2009, 4 p.m. (EST)
Juror: TBA

Exhibition runs: June 13, 2009 - July 4, 2009
Opening Reception: June 13, 2009, 5-8 p.m.

Seeking Solitude: Isolation In Art

Call for Submissions

Seeking Solitude: Isolation In Art

(Swainsboro, GA) - Gallery RFD seeks submissions for its upcoming exhibition titled Seeking Solitude: Isolation In Art.

Carl Sandburg commented, “One of the greatest necessities in America is to discover creative solitude.” Though artists draw inspiration from the outside world, a certain degree of solitude is essential for creative thought. Seclusion offers time for reflection, to extract the imagery and emotion our minds will conjure and convert them into artistic representation. Many an artist have created their most powerful work in isolation to the outside world, finding that in self-inflicted detachment they are able to extricate lost parts of themselves. Gallery RFD calls for works of art that visually reflect or have been created within the confines of solitude.

Submission deadline: Thursday, March 26, 2009, 4 p.m. (EST)
Juror: TBA

Exhibition runs: May 9, 2009 - June 6, 2009
Opening Reception: May 9, 2009, 5-8 p.m.
