Call for Entries/Open Call

Seton Hall University’s Walsh Gallery is currently soliciting submissions for a group thematic exhibition, Eye Tricks, to be shown November 12th through December 15th, 2007. Open to all artists working in any media, this exhibition will include art that seeks to fool the eye through any number of illusory means including (but not limited to); holograms, tessellations, op-art, mirrors, lenses, zoetropes, ambigrams, stereograms, lenticulars, flip-books, lights, diachronic technologies, nanoart, prisms, spinners, motorized sculpture, etc. The curators are especially interested in video art, sculpture and non-traditional media. The exhibition will focus on the intersection of art and science, elucidating how the artistic illusions function on a scientific level, while remaining accessible to those without a background in science.


Eye Tricks is open to all artists, working in any media. All forms of art are eligible. There is a limit of 5 entries per artist. Entrants must be 18 years of age or older to apply. All work must be ready for installation or hanging. Work must be available for the entire length of the exhibition. Sculptors may be required to supply pedestals.


The Final deadline is Friday, September 21, 2007. All entries must be received (not postmarked) by this date, no exceptions.
There is a $15 entry fee regardless of the number of entries submitted (1 - 5). Details of artwork do not count additional (please limit details to 1 or 2 per submission). Please make check or money order payable to Walsh Gallery.
