Via Georgia Council for the Arts: “The Office of the Governor in partnership with Georgia Council for the Arts is pleased to announce the first call of Governor Kemp’s Administration for The Art of Georgia IV: Imaging Home; Landscapes. Since 2012 Art of Georgia exhibits have displayed 354 works of art by 261 Georgia artists in the Office of the Governor at the State Capitol. With this new call, for the first time, the program has been expanded to include The Governor’s Mansion. Detailed submission guidelines for each exhibit follow.
The Art of Georgia IV: Imaging Home; Landscapes seeks to capture the diversity and uniqueness of communities and natural terrain throughout Georgia as seen, explored, and depicted through the artist’s eye. Two-dimensional visual art, in a variety of media, exploring this theme will be considered. The exhibits, which will showcase current work of contemporary Georgia visual artists, will hang in the executive offices of the State Capitol and the Ballroom of the Governor’s Mansion. Artwork will be sought and selected by region over a two-year time frame, with work from each region on display for approximately six-months. Three-dimensional work and film and video installations are not eligible. This is not a professional, juried competition. Pieces will be selected by Georgia Council for the Arts and the Office of the Governor. All decisions are final.”
DEADLINE AUGUST 27 for Northeast Georgia (Includes CSRA Counties: COLUMBIA, RICHMOND, MCDUFFIE, BURKE)
