My American Experience
What America claims to be the land of the free, a country where dreams are nurtured and allowed to come true. It professes to welcome the immigrant and anyone seeking a better life.
But the experience of America to the individual living here is as broad as the country is big. Current events bring to light how far the myth is from reality for many within our borders. Yet some fortunate people do experience the abundance and opportunities available here.
We invite artists to share their uniquely American Experiences.
Freedom of expression is still one of the sacred promises of the Founding Fathers. This show intends to encourage and honor that freedom through art."

Outwin Boochever Portrait Competition
What Artists are invited to submit portraits in any media for consideration in the sixth triennial Outwin Boochever Portrait Competition. As with past editions, the competition seeks to broaden the definition of portraiture and highlight the genre’s relevance in society and contemporary art. Artworks may originate from direct encounters between the artist and the sitter or draw upon existing imagery or archival research in response to history. Artists are encouraged to think about portraiture’s potential to engage with the social and political landscape of our time.

What What does 'home' mean to you? Is it a structure that provides shelter and safety? How has 'shelter in place' affected you? Is home like a prison, a place you long to escape from or a welcoming respite from a busy social life? Is it a place of chaos, where you juggle home schooling, housework and work-at home schedules? Have you been unable to get home due to travel restrictions, illness, or work? What does it mean to be 'homeless' during these times? Has being at home gifted you the time to get to know your family members better, to enjoy the simple domesticity of cooking, cleaning, gardening? On a broader perspective, does it bring to mind a place filled with memories, a place where you were born or grew up? What memories or senses remind you of home - old family photos, heirlooms or keepsakes, recipes that remind you of your mother or grandmother, the temperature or climate of a place, the sounds of birdsong, traffic or voices? Define 'home' as you wish, with or without COVID-19's influence. We look forward to receiving a wide range of perspectives on this theme.
