2017-05-03 2017-07-25 America/New_York WILL'S CREEK EXHIBITION CALL FOR ENTRY 18th Annual Will's Creek Call for Entry

The Will's Creek Exhibition is a national juried exhibition of contemporary American art hosted by the Allegany Arts Council at its professional Saville and Schwab galleries in Cumberland, Maryland. Now in it's 18th year, the Will's Creek Exhibition features contemporary art relating to an exhibition theme. This year's theme is Being Sentient/Sentient Being. We invite artists to consider how as “human” sentient beings, we express an awareness of “ourselves” in relation to “others” in a work of art – be it other humans, other living creatures, or even nature itself, the very complex of forces that makes sentience possible. We welcome traditional media, as well as installation, video, kinetic, sound, and performance art.

THEME

We are all alone in our perceptions of the world. At the same time, we are profoundly connected, both with other humans, and all sentient beings. In Western thought, sentient beings are understood as all living beings that have the capacity for pleasure and pain. This is closely related to the Buddhist view of sentience as a quality shared by all creatures who are subject to illusion, suffering, and death. Both of these perspectives center on the notion of compassion – or one’s ability to feel and care for others.

This exhibition is intended to bring together diverse artistic reflections on this complex and ever more important discourse. We invite artists to consider how as “human” sentient beings, we express this awareness of “ourselves” in relation to “others” in a work of art – be it other humans, other living creatures, or even nature itself, the very complex of forces that makes sentience possible. We welcome traditional media, as well as installation, video, kinetic, sound, and performance art.
