Answering the call of ‘HOME’
Belfast — Waterfall Arts will hold an opening reception for its 2017 open-call exhibition, “HOME,” Friday, April 7, from 5:30 to 8 p.m. The reception is free and open to the public; light refreshments will be served.
Each exhibition season at Waterfall Arts kicks off with a non-juried, open-call show that invites artists that work in a range of disciplines, from all over the country, to submit work. This year’s theme, in conjunction with the 2017 overall exhibition theme of Place and Belonging, is Home. Artists were asked to reflect on what home means to them. Is home a physical space, warm and cozy; is it a place of conflict and tension; or something in between? Is home more of a psychological place, an invention of an ideal space or mental state? The open-call has resulted in more than 100 submissions, all of which will be on display in the Clifford and Corridor galleries through May 12.
Waterfall Arts is located at 256 High St. The Clifford Gallery is open Tuesdays through Fridays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is free. Exhibitions are made possible by the generous support of individual donors and local sponsors ReVision Energy, Old Professor’s Bookshop, All Creatures Acupuncture, VeloInk and Viking Lumber.
Additional support is provided by foundations such as the Morton-Kelly Charitable Trust, the Onion Foundation and the Maine Arts Commission, an independent state agency supported by the National Endowment for the Arts. For more information, call 338-2222 or visit waterfallarts.org.
