Call for Art – Peace and Quiet

Peace and Quiet Juried Exhibit

In the United States, our political sphere has been tumultuous. Our social sphere has unresolved issues. Existential threats, such as climate change and the pandemic, impose themselves into our present. Peace and quiet may seem desirable at this juncture.

OCAC presents a Call for Artwork that addresses the theme of "Peace and Quiet". Whether real or imagined, formal or conceptual, we are looking for work that exhibits a more contemplative, even meditative, approach.

We invite artists within a 50-mile radius of Oxford, Ohio to submit an application for a juried group exhibition at Oxford Community Art Center. This exhibit will be comprised of both 2D and 3D work. Awards will include 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place with potential for a solo show for the first place winner.

To apply, each artist will need to:

  1. Complete an online application form.
    Select the link above, save the document to your computer, fill in the fields, save it as a PDF to your computer, and upload to Dropbox.
  2. Upload to Dropbox
    1. One PDF document named lastname_firstname. Each PDF should include:
      1. artist CV
      2. a submission details page, including details for each piece: title, media, dimensions, and date.
    2. Images - up to three (3) images of your artwork. Name each photo: lastname_firstname_nameofartwork_numberofimage-howmanyimagesintotal
      For example:
      • Kahlo_Frida_Self-Portrait in a Velvet Dress_1_3

Each artist may submit anywhere from one to three pieces per application. If desired, an artist may apply more than once (paying the fee each time) to submit additional pieces - up to three per application.
