Portland, OR: June/July, 2018
Verum Ultimum Gallery is thrilled to invite artists to explore, “The Living Mark” for the fifth year in a row and enter work that is any interpretation of the call. The intention of the call is not to drive the work, but to spark an impetus, and discover unique visions to showcase. ALL MEDIUMS are welcome (painting, mixed media, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, photography, ceramic, textile, and more). Mark making is an integral part of the creative process and the evidence of the artist’s hand is always exciting to see. The most successful works seem to be enlivened by these marks (whether abstract or representational). This call emphasizes the process with a focus on the individual style of the art maker (whether impassioned, studied, or subdued). What kind of marks and/or media do you use to lead to great results? What is your personal interpretation of this metaphoric or symbolic vehicle, “The Living Mark”?
