Call to Artists April-June “By the Light of the Moon”
The Southern Coos Hospital & Health Center will host a show of artworks relating to the theme of By the Light of the Moon. This show runs April through June 2021.
Works can broadly interpret the theme of By the Light of the Moon to include literal scenes such as those we see around us. Your creations can be indoors, outdoors, low light expressions of that magical time between sunset and sunrise. Moon glow, full moon, no moon at all, slivers, slices, reflections—literal or metaphorical. Think of all that happens at night while we sleep; ponder those who work the night shift. Let your imagination wander/wonder.
As usual, you can be creative in your interpretation of the theme, keeping in mind that art on the hospital walls is meant to entertain and de-stress the patients, families, staff, and general visitors. It is not a venue for nudity, violence, morbidity, or as a political soapbox. Thank you for your continued positive approach to art in these shows.
Artists may enter 1-3 pieces using painting, collage, mixed media, drawing, photography or assemblage in all artistic styles: representational, abstract, impressionistic, or futuristic. All works must be able to be hung on the wall.
Southern Coos Hospital & Health Center’s Art Program continues to remain free to enter. Please consider donating to the Hospital’s Art Fund if you are able. For more information, please email Scott at firstname.lastname@example.org.
