One way of thinking about visual art is that the artist finds or discovers something - be it inside or outside of the artist - and, through art, holds it still. A photographer captures a moment in time with a click of the shutter and that moment is locked in stillness. A painter paints a scene using oils on canvas and that scene exists forever in a motionless state. A sculptor molds and shapes details of a human body, and that body stands frozen...never to age...never to change.
From those artists chosen for the show, a small number will be named Artists of Distinction. These artists will be invited to show more of their work as Gallery Artists and will have the opportunity to have their portfolios published in an upcoming issue of the Gallery’s art and literary journal,Still Point Arts Quarterly. Details about submissions, along with the entry form, may be found on the gallery's website. http://www.stillpointartgallery.com
The deadline for submissions is April 2, 2012. Exhibition dates are April 18 through July 17, 2012.
