We are seeking guest artists (Latinx + WOC greatly encouraged) to submit artwork that depicts either their individual or communal perspective from their current situational position. Artists who create narratives of both inner and outward reflections of the self and/or the community through their works are especially welcomed. Artworks that offer a reflected alternative to the unnoticed and at times invisible narratives and underrepresented communities within society, such as trans and queer identity; the physical, spiritual, sexual, and mental consciousness of the (Latinx/WOC) self; and the complicated realities of living in the US are highly encouraged to apply. All mediums of art welcome: drawing, collage, zines, painting, photography, video, mixed media, installation, performance, etc.
This exhibition seeks to capture the diffused reflections caused by our bumpy political and social climate. Unlike specular reflections (mirror-like), diffuse reflection is the reflection of light, usually from an uneven surface, that causes the initial light to scatter at many angles. There are multiple reflections that can intersect and cross paths but they still maintain their individuality and initial angle. The artists included in this exhibition will be the light that hits the uneven surface from their situational positions, their art is the reflection we are viewing. This exhibition will be a reflection, a casting of images and representations; it will be a moment of consideration and meditation for local, regional, and national artists to share their perspectives and narratives.
