7th Annual TAPPED
An Exhibit of Works by Artists and their Current or Former Teachers*...
Deadline: October 6, 2016
Application fee: $36 for up to three entries
The relationship between artists and their current or former professors can be a powerful one. Even when this bond is left unstated, we carry our teachers' voices forward in time as we mature as artists and people. We eventually realize that the instruction given by our teachers during our relatively brief careers as students continues to expand within us. We realize that the learning they inspired (or insisted upon) is a chain-reaction process that develops across our lifetime. All of us who have been students carry forward our professors' legacy in one form or another. And those who are, or have been professors, bear witness to the potency of studenthood.
Out of respect for this artist-teacher bond, and in honor of professors working hard to help their students tap into a higher mind relative to art and life, we offer TAPPED, an annual exhibit that presents paired works of art by artists and their current or former professors.
* It is important to note that this project is open to artists and their CURRENT or PAST professors. The 'student' half of the pair may be a college freshman, a retired veteran, or at any stage in between. Likewise, the professor half of the pair may be currently or no longer teaching. The sole criteria for the pairing is that the relationship between the two was a formal teacher/student one at some point in time.
Please also note - this is NOT a call for collaborative works. TAPPED will feature distinct works made by separate individuals.
Submission deadline: October 7, 2016
