AN OPEN CALL - Hastings Art Forum

Deadline for submissions: 12 noon Sunday 8 March 2015And where were you?  
6 – 26 April 2015 
The theme is on the idea of absence.
. . . A feeling of exclusion “wish you were here”   
. . . Frustration, at the negligence of others
. . . Anxiety, revealing the underbelly of domestic life
. . . Abuse, that alludes to the power struggles behind closed doors
. . . Religious, cultural or family events like Easter, Sunday lunch, weddings or funerals
The objective is to suggest, with nothing blatant, direct or violent, to engage the viewer to respond to the artwork so they may rethink or re-exam their views.  Or they may identify with the subject matter and recognise they are not alone.
Any medium would be considered; sound, video, interactive, tactile and installation - along with more traditional skills for this exhibition.
Please supply a total of 6 images as 800dpi jpgs with 100 words in a Word document summarising your work, along with your personal details to -   Putting Sally/Lorrain in the subject box
10 artists will be selected and notified by 11 March by Sally Meakins and Lorrain Mailer to exhibit in both galleries.
There will be a cost of £50.00 per head and *an annual fee of £35.00 (£12.00 for students) if not a HAF member.
