Park Forest, IL—(ENEWSPF)—July 6, 2017.  Tall Grass Arts Association, 367 Artists Walk in DownTown Park Forest, is calling for entries for its upcoming juried exhibition entitled ‘MARK of the HAND.’  The exhibit will be held September 29 through November 4. Entry deadline is Friday, August 11.

From prehistory, humans have told their story by literally leaving marks with their hands. Direct mark making and hand forming are the theme of the ‘MARK of the HAND’ art show.

‘MARK of the HAND’ will include two and three-dimensional art which celebrates the legacy of traditional, pre-1800 art tools and processes. The artwork will show evidence of being made directly by the human hand.

Media includes (but not limited to) painting, drawing, original printmaking (etchings, engravings, woodcuts and lithographs), sculpture, ceramics, metals, fiber, glass, and wood.

Cash “Awards of Excellence” will be given.

Curated and juried by Gail Otterson, MFA and Bill Wild, BA, GIA.

Please Note: ‘MARK of the HAND’ will not include photography or digital art.  As a complement to this handmade show, Tall Grass Gallery will host a digital art show in April 2018.

There is an entry fee of $25 for the submission of three artworks.
