“THE UNSEEN”: CALL FOR ENTRIES (1st place wins an iPad2)

Share

iAMDA is now accepting entries for its first ONLINE EXHIBITION.  They are calling all artists to submit works for “THE UNSEEN”, an online showcase of mobile digital works that push the boundaries of what we know and have seen in the past–visually and/or creatively.

The show is juried by visual artist, Michael James Miller.  Miller’s paintings, installations, and prints investigate the continuing relationship between art and technology. He is currently an Associate Professor of Visual Arts at The University of Illinois, Springfield.

Selected works will be featured in an online exhibition hosted on iAMDA.org and will remain in the iAMDA.org exhibition archives (accessible on the site) after it closes.

Michael will also select a first place winner who will be awarded the coveted Apple iPad 2.  Four others will receive our “juror’s award”,  a $25 iTunes gift card.  All other selected artists will have the distinct privilege of having their work displayed in iAMDA’s first annual online exhibition, with name listing and site/blog links.  All works will be added to remain in our show archives after the exhibition closes.

Winners and selected artists will be contacted prior to the show’s launch on April 16th.
