Eligibility:

"UNMASKED”: to reveal the true character of; a revelation; an unveiling.

​McCord Gallery invites artists to apply for the upcoming exhibition "Unmasked". After a year of being hidden behind our masks, we hope to capture the artist's interpretation of "unmasking": to reveal the true character of something. It's an unveiling; exposing what was hidden; revealing the unexpected, literally or figuratively. What can be seen in a new way?

For this exhibition, we are seeking works of art created with Acrylic, Charcoal, Collage, Color Pencil, Drawings, Mixed Media, Oil, Pastel, Pen & Ink, and Watercolor ONLY. Artwork executed in any other medium other than those noted will NOT be accepted. NO Giclees or reproductions of original works will be accepted. All subject matter is included. Artists may submit up to 2 works for consideration for both the in-gallery exhibit and full virtual gallery of works on our website. All submissions will be considered. All styles and aesthetics are accepted, from traditional to contemporary. McCord Gallery selections are based on creativity, quality of artistry and originality as represented in the images submitted. The McCord Gallery & Cultural Center is a non-profit art gallery open to everyone; as such, the content of submissions should be appropriate for all viewers.

Drawing in Black/White/Grey

Country:

Eligibility:

"Colour is descriptive. Black and white is interpretive.” Eliott Erwitt
When images are limited to black, white and shades of grey, viewers are drawn to focus on the subject matter, and the details of how the artist interprets an image in the absence of color. The simplicity of a restricted palette works across many media. Quite often, the fundamentals of drawing and painting are introduced with the most basic colors of black, white, and grey. With an eagerness to learn color theory, appreciation can be lost for the depth and versatility of this limited color palette...McCord Gallery & Cultural Center is looking for artists to submit their BLACK/WHITE/GREY works of art.

For this exhibition, we are seeking BLACK/WHITE/GREY works of art created with graphite, charcoal, silver point, pencil, dry brush technique, pen & ink, scratchboard and ballpoint pen ONLY. No color should be part of the image. All subject matter is included. Artwork executed in any other medium other than those noted will not be accepted. Artists may submit up to 3 works for consideration for both the in-gallery exhibit and full virtual gallery of works on our website. All submissions will be considered. All styles and aesthetics are accepted, from traditional to contemporary. McCord Gallery selections are based on creativity, quality of artistry and originality as represented in the images submitted. The McCord Gallery & Cultural Center is a non-profit art gallery open to everyone; as such, the content of submissions should be appropriate for all viewers.
