“The artist […] is always an anarchist in the best sense of the word. He must heed only the call that arises within him from three strong voices: the voice of death, with all its foreboding, the voice of love, and the voice of art.” – Federico García-Lorca

The turning of fall into winter is a time when many cultures observe and celebrate the transition from life to death. It’s the season when the veil between this world and the next, thins. With this exhibit, we invite artists to embrace the three voices of death, love, and art, whether you draw inspiration from celebrations like the Day of the Dead, All Souls Day, Halloween, or Samhain, or the natural world around us as the season changes.

Submission Deadline: Sunday, September 18
Submit your work

Please be advised that Arts Center East retains the right to refuse any work if it is not wired and ready to hang, or if it is inappropriate for the exhibition venue. Work must remain on view for the duration of the exhibition.

Any artwork that is not picked up after 30 days from the exhibition end date will become property of Arts Center East, with the artist relinquishing all rights to said artwork.
