9th Annual Tapped: Works by Artists and their Current or Former Instructors

Manifest Gallery in Cincinnati, OH announces a call to artists for a juried art exhibition, December 14, 2018 - January 11, 2019. 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 professors' voices forward in time as we mature as artists and people. We realize that the learning they inspired (or insisted upon) is a chain-reaction process that develops across our lifetime. Out of respect for the artist-teacher bond, and in honor of instructors working hard to help artists tap into a higher mind relative to art and life, we offer an annual exhibit that presents works of art by current or former professor/student pairs. $40 entry fee. Deadline: September 30, 2018. More info. Contact: email or call 513-861-3638.
