Who Are You?
What In this exhibit we ask you to explore identity. Whether you’ve embraced the identity assigned to you at birth or you have fashioned one cut from new cloth, what does identity mean to you? We ask you to consider the following questions:
• How is your identity informed by your ethnicity, who you love, your gender, your political or religious beliefs, the culture that resonates within you? How has your identity changed over the years? In what ways has your identity shaped or changed your life? Does the world see and accept you for who you are?
• Allow your art to give voice to that which you personally define as identity. It can be very personal, or it can highlight a person or a cause that is about the concept.
• We invite two- and three-dimensional art. Think portraits, landscapes, abstract, photos, collages, paintings, sculptures, fiber arts, clay, paper, sound installation, video.

What What does it mean to be safe? And what is safety now? Psychologist Abraham Maslow identified safety as one of the foundational universal human needs, second only to physiological needs such as air, water, and food. We inherently seek safety for ourselves and those we love. But how do we successfully find safety in a pandemic world in which the people and objects around us represent infection and danger? And how can art provide opportunities for safety and security?

What “Fragments” brings to mind broken pieces, something incomplete, a small part of something larger or remains when something has been lost or destroyed. We are seeking works ranging from abstract to representational, fantasy to realism, and portraiture to architecture and landscape. Help us shatter traditional boundaries by your imaginative interpretation of “fragments.”
