Matters of the Heart




In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, the month of February will be all about the heart.  Las Laguna Gallery proudly presents: Matters of the Heart. Just as discussion about the heart is a subjective matter, so too is the interpretation of the theme for our February show.
We are looking for works of art that not only evokes the various feelings of love (passion, affection, lust, tenderness, infatuation, etc.), but also can include literal images of hearts themselves.

We invite the artist to take a conceptual, literal or emotional approach on matters of the heart. In addition to portrayals of the heart, we ask, what do you love?

Accepted are all media from  photography to fabric, mixed media, fiber arts, all paintings, drawings including, oil, acrylic, ink, graphite, pastels, and more.

All local, national and international artists, professional and amateur are encouraged to submit their artwork for this art exhibition.

CALL FOR ENTRIES ​ 2019 Theme Show: The Illusion and Reality






We are very excited to announce the open call for Ning Gallery’s next exhibition: “The Illusion and Reality.” This is an opportunity for artists residing in the U.S. to showcase their works in a competitive and juried exhibition.

What is illusion? What is reality? What is the relationship between the two? The conflictions among certainty and uncertainty, existence and nonexistence, reality and unreality are all a sort of question that has puzzled mankind over the vicissitude of time.

This exhibition will explore artists' interpretations of the relationship between reality and illusion in their creative processes and will explore how can art bridges the gap between the world of imaginations and that of the facts. Therefore, we are looking for artists who’d love to express their thoughts in the artworks related to this topic.

Artists/makers/creatives/performers needed.




Be a part of an immersive experience, experimental installation and performance exploring layers of confusion and belonging through sound, light and objects.

I am a MA performance design student at the University of Leeds, and I am currently working in collaboration with Jonathan Parker (hoppla creative and Inkwell arts) on an extension of a piece developed in Germany whilst on an artist residency. The piece is story, and originally an object and promenade performance, I am developing it into a sound installation with interactive live elements.


I have two roles to fill:


1 – speakers/performers: I need people who are confident learning a piece of text and reciting it in a not-so-traditional manner. I am looking for a variety of languages, and if possible some people confident in sign language.


2 – makers  (painters, illustrators, writers, sculptors, fabricators etc): in response to a prompt and/or a piece of text form the story, I would like to create a set of relics, a sort of living history of the piece. The audience will then be encouraged to add to this archive, and expand its presence.

The piece(s) would be displayed alongside the installation, in the foyer at stage@leeds, on the 5th Feb.


I aim to have about 7 showings through the day, (of roughly 15-20 audience members each time) so it would be fab to get loads of people and mediums involved, and a great way to push the boundaries of the University of Leeds Theatre.

If you or anyone you know would be up for it let me know. It would a great thing to be involved in etc (UOL MA collaborative, experimental, cross disciplinary, interactive work).


Both of these are unpaid roles, however, I can provide tea and/or vegan snacks.

Let me know what you think and if you need extra details.
