Call for Entries:  In February, ARC Gallery and Educational Foundation will host Intimacy, a group exhibition juried by Andrea Green, Director of the Visiting Artists Program at SAIC.
The exhibit aims to explore how notions of intimacy can inform artistic practices and how art can portray the many aspects of intimacy, including, but not limited to, relationships between people, people and things, creator and object, individual and environment, private and public. Entries can consider ideas of: scale, familiarity, proximity, closeness, tenderness, attachment.  Investigations of intimacy as a concept in art-making are of primary interest in this exhibit.  Artists should examine not only the meanings of intimacy, but its expression in formal, social, social and political contexts.  Prospectus. 832 W. Superior, #204.
