steve+ward+signShadow and Light

Confluence Gallery invites you to contribute to our Shadow and Light show at the Confluence Gallery in Twisp, WA. The show will open on January 16 and will run thru February 27, 2016.

Shadow defines light and light defines shadow, giving definition, clarity or mystery to the world around us.

Our landscapes, both rural and urban, the architecture of our towns and buildings, the seasons of the year are all defined in some way by the Shadow and Light thrown upon them.

Stepping away from literal ideas we think of the Shadow and Light of the human psyche, of dreams, hopes or fears.

Please submit up to 3 pieces of your work for this mid-winter exhibit.

Here are the rules- Each piece must be:

– Your own original work.

– Available for sale.

– Created in the last 3 years.

– Never previously been shown in the Methow Valley area.

– Any Size

– Any Medium

– Ready for hanging with appropriate hardware/wire secured to work (works without hanging hardware will not be hung)

Please note the curator(s) have the right to refuse work, even after work is delivered to the gallery, if it does not contribute to the direction, cohesiveness, or available space of the show. They are looking for high quality execution and thoughtful content that contribute to the vision of the show as stated above.
