Call To Artists
The Ford Gallery is currently accepting art submissions for “Self Care”: A Group Art Show showcasing the tools we use to manage depression. Self care in mental health is hard work that takes constant effort and a good deal of self love. The artists in this exhibit share their experience as neuro-atypical peers while illustrating the tools they use to cope. We are looking for work inspired from your own personal self care regimen. Accepted artists are encouraged to share their story of depression and to discuss methods they have used to live with or overcome depressive symptoms.
Through this exhibit, we aim to provide those who are starting out with self care useful knowledge, helpful resources, shared experience, and to see that they are not alone.
Each accepted artist will be allowed up to 3 pieces of 2D, 3D or textile artwork. Both new & pre-existing artwork fitting the “Self Care” theme will be considered. Please provide 3 examples of your work and a brief bio.
Submissions are due Friday, October 20th.
‘Self Care’ opens November 4th.
Artwork drop-off November 1st & 2nd.
