Octavia Art Gallery of New Orleans is calling for entries for a juried exhibition, “Drawing the Line,” that is open to artists working in any medium, including film or digital media, as long as the focus is on lines. The deadline for entry is Friday, July 1.
To clarify, the focus of entries should be on lines, in case you misread that as “online.”
The gallery suggests that, although drawing has been conventionally associated with pen, pencil and paper, artists have conceptually redefined the use of line via other materials and media.
“Drawing now encompasses film, computer screens, earth, walls, and materials ranging from sticks to pixels,” the gallery’s announcement noted. “The nature of drawing is not limited by media, nor is it characterized by a format.”
The exhibit is to be held August 6-27 at the gallery, located at 4532 Magazine Street.
Crescent City artist Rebecca Rebouche will serve as the exhibit juror. There are no fees for entry. Individuals may submit up to five pieces, in digital format only, for consideration. Artists interested in submitting their work may request an application by writing firstname.lastname@example.org.
