The Moon Gallery is pleased to announce a juried exhibition of functional ceramics, utility, from 12 October-10 November.

Artists from across the United States are invited to submit work in clay that is designed for a practical use. The exhibition will be juried by artist/educator/designer Heather Mae Erickson, who has had her work shown in a range of venues around the world. The recipient of numerous residencies, awards, and fellowships, her expertise is widely sought after for workshops and lectures. The Art Program at Berry College is excited about working with Professor Erickson to showcase innovative work in ceramics while providing a rich resource for our community. 

Call for Proposals:1708 Gallery InLight Richmond

1708 Gallery is pleased to announce that its 13th annual InLight Richmond will take place from November 12th - 16th, 2020 at sites across Richmond and will address the paired themes of Safety and Accountability.

InLight is a public exhibition of contemporary light-based artworks—multimedia and interactive projects, video, projection, sculpture, installation, performance, community-based work, digital and virtual projects—and has historically taken place in a singular location each November. Past sites include Chimborazo Park, the streets, facades and alleyways of the downtown Arts District, and the sculpture garden and grounds of the VMFA.

In response to COVID-19, InLight’s multi-site platform will allow for socially-distanced and virtual viewing. Further inspired by the ongoing community dialogues surrounding the unjust and inequitable treatment of Black lives and by Richmond’s coming together in support and aid during these crises, this year is focused on Safety and Accountability.
1708 invites artists, community groups, and stewards of spaces in Richmond to propose projects that can illuminate issues of Safety and Accountability. We seek proposals that respond to what these key terms mean spatially, historically, socially, and politically. We invite proposals that demonstrate profound consideration for designated sites and their communities.  

Deadline: July 31, 2020
