Inspired By... Show & Sale

The Alliance invited artists from the region to share their interpretation of the theme Inspired by…

Have you ever felt emotion when seeing a picture, hearing a song, watching dancers’ movements, watching a film, reading a poem, book or even the news? Has it called you to action? Maybe you were called to activism. Maybe to create a piece of art or to write a story.

For this show, we asked community visual and performing artists to submit entries evoked by something that elicited an emotion.

Performing artists submitted a photo of themselves engaged in the performance, along with their inspiration for the work. A framed photo will hang in the show with the inspiration statement appearing in the title card below. A QR code will bring the viewer to the artists’ video channels or websites of their choice.

While we are happy to begin welcoming people back from the pandemic, all prevailing CDC Covid-19 protocols will be observed and posted outside the gallery.

First, second and third prize certificates will be awarded as well as a “People’s Choice,” selected by visitors to the gallery by ballot. This winner of the Peoples’ Choice vote will award the winning artist free entry into a future show.
