When: Sept. 16-Nov. 7 2015
We are often given gifts that are unsightly, unseemly, or straight out of a nightmare. Often these “gifts” stay with us, sometimes for the better. The gifts we never wanted take many forms, both physically and emotionally. In the end we have to ask—are gifts given for the sender or the receiver? For the exhibition The Gift You Never Wanted, Non-Fiction Gallery seeks works of art that explore the idea of the gift as a burden or a blessing. Artists of all media and practice are invited to submit to this open-ended theme. To submit to The Gift You Never Wanted, please pay your application fee below and send between four and six images to firstname.lastname@example.org by midnight on November 7th. Exhibition dates December 18-January 2.
