Deadline for submissions to Borders: Illusions that constrain us

March 16

Borders: illusions that constrain us [a call to artists]

Today’s the day! Submit artworks in any media, by new or returning artists, of any age, to our Borders: illusions that constrain us 2020 art show.

Visual, written, and multi-media works may be considered. Submit up to 3 pieces by sending no more than three (3) .jpgs showing them to museum@birdsofvermont.org. Please put “Submission for Borders art show” in the email subject. Please include contact information and a description of work (media, artwork size, when made, etc.).

Entries are due by Monday, March 16, 2020.

What borders do birds encounter? Our maps do not typically reflect the territories they perceive, the ranges they travel, or the barriers they comes across. How do birds’ boundaries connect to human borders? To those of other species? Edges of things—physically, spatially, temporally— raise questions, not least of which is “Is it really there?”

We ponder this, wondering, how do and will these encounters and connections alter us, birds, and the borders themselves?

The art show runs from May 1 to October 31 at the Birds of Vermont Museum. We have both indoor and outdoor (unprotected) spaces. In addition to walls, we have shelves to display for smaller three-dimensional pieces, room outdoors for weather-impervious works, and some ceiling area. You are welcome to visit to consider the potential.
