PRIDE Art Exhibit Call for EntriesApril 01, 2022
The PRIDE Corpus Christi LGBTQIA+ Art Exhibit, opening on June 3rd, is now accepting entries. The exhibit will be showcased in the PRODUCE® Gallery downtown, 419 Peoples St. The theme of this year’s gallery is to “display queer intimacy with the self, between other-selves, and sometimes with the absence of self. This exhibit’s narrative highlights the various experiences of feeling in-between and not neatly fitting into spaces. As a result, the theme understands queer communities as filled with pockets of liminal spaces, but also interrogates this phenomenon through the lens of relationships, love, and belonging.”
Works must be an original piece and artists are required to submit photographs of potential works to be exhibited to: firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for submissions is Friday, May 27, 2022. Artists will be notified about their acceptance of selected works by May 29th.
