Art sought for gallery’s exhibit

HOLLIS – Wild Sala­mander Creative Arts Cen­ter’s Whitty Gallery is seek­ing art for its new show, "Defined."

The show will create a tribute to visual interpreta­tion of the human language.

Artists are asked to select a word that inspires them be­yond the literal. Each piece of artwork will be displayed next to the word that sparked its creation. The gallery walls will become a dictionary, of sorts, spanning cultures and geography to visually define human communication.

The gallery is seeking original art, size 30 inches and lower, including frame. All media are eligible, in­cluding textiles and hanging sculpture. All artwork must be wired to hang on the wall.

Artists may submit one piece for $5, and it will be subject to jurying by the gallery manager. New art is preferred.

Drop-off dates for art­work are Saturday, Sept. 5, and Tuesday, Sept. 8, or by appointment.

An opening reception will be held from 5-7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 11. The show will run through Sunday, Nov. 1.
