The Prizm Creative Community and its venue partner, The Way Public Library at 101 E. Indiana Avenue in Perrysburg, announce a call for artists to participate in its Animals in Art Exhibition, which will be on display for two months starting on Wednesday, August 30 and ending on October 28 in the Way Gallery downstairs.
Accepted for the exhibit will be 2-D and 3-D art in all artistic media except for video, installation, audio or culinary art. All pieces entered must depict an animal. Sea creatures and insects are also considered animals for the purposes of this exhibition. Participants may submit two works each, and are encouraged to consider wildlife, exotic or farm animals or even pets that have been immortalized in photography or other creative works.
There will not be a fee to participate in this exhibit, nor will a commission be taken on works sold. Participants can select whether works will be offered for sale or not. Complete details are available on the application displayed in the library or a printable version is found on the homepage of the Prizm website at www.MyPrizm.com or at the Way Library website at www.waylibrary.info.
Art submissions accompanied by the completed application can be dropped off at the library between Monday, August 21 and Sunday, August 27 during normal business hours. At the conclusion of the exhibit period, artists can stop into the library to pick up their work on October 29-31.
Wild Light Open At Secor Metropark Through August
The National Center for Nature Photography will host Rick Lieder’s Wild Light, 90-plus images of the diverse beauty of Midwest animals and nature, including his filmmaking for PBS Nova’s Creatures of Light, produced by National Geographic.
With minimal equipment and boundless vision and patience, Lieder shoots active portraits of finches and fireflies, fawns and swans, revealing the world of the creatures that live all around us, in our parks, ponds and backyards. The exhibit includes some of Lieder’s never-before-seen video and more than a dozen paintings and illustrations.
Lieder’s work is featured in a series of stunning picture books – Step Gently Out, Sweep Up the Sun, Among a Thousand Fireflies and the just-released Wake Up! – with his co-author, Helen Frost. He is working on a new book exploring the lives of Sandhill cranes.
Signed copies of the books will be available during BugFest, on Saturday, August 19, and Lieder will offer several workshops/presentations during the course of the exhibit, which runs through the end of August.
