Shifting Tides: Convergence in Cloth will focus on the current state of the Pacific Ocean ecosystem, its marvelous natural diversity, and the human activities that both sustain and threaten oceanic life. Whether one lives on the ocean or in the interior, the Pacific touches many lives and economies. As residents of this greater North Pacific region, artists are encouraged to share personal narratives and statements about what exists, current threats, and needed actions. The exhibit seeks to include a representative range of North Pacific mainland and island habitats and issues. The selected works may focus solely on one area of flora, fauna, geology, oceanography and human activity, or may combine them. Subject matter may be inspired by sources as personal as vacations or fact-based as current scientific research. Works will be wall art (2D) of any style from realism to the abstract. Through the variety of artistic styles and viewpoints, Shifting Tides: Convergence in Cloth will delight and challenge viewers to assess their own per- ceptions regarding the interplay of oceanic and human communities.
Deadline: November 30, 2018
