Call for Entries: Whats Your GPS?

Add to Favorites Report Listing

Art call for: What’s Your GPS?

Your GPS system can pinpoint your altitude, latitude, and longitude, but not your attitude. GPS instantly maps your starting location to your destination. When does a geographic location become a place? The WorldAtlas description reads: “Place refers to the physical and human aspects of a location. This theme of geography is associated with toponym (the name of a place), site (the description of the features of the place), and situation (the environmental conditions of the place). Each place in the world has its unique characteristics.”

This national juried exhibit will be exploring how location transforms into place and how a place can transform you. Is there a location you love or hate? Is there a “place” that has helped define who you are? All media and artistic disciplines are welcome to apply.

Cash prizes totaling $1000 will be awarded by the juror.

Juror, Laura Strand, is head of Textile Arts and has a comprehensive background and formal training in surface design, weaving, bookbinding, papermaking and basketry through a BFA from Georgia State University and an MFA from the University of Kansas, Lawrence. Laura has exhibited and lectured throughout the country.
