Call for Art – all media including photography

The Orange County Center for Contemporary Art (OCCCA), Santa Ana (OC) has issued an Call for Art on the theme of “Animal Magnetism” which you can find more information at the link. The juror is Mat Gleason, the Editor and Publisher of  Coagula Art Magazine.

The deadline for submissions is Saturday, July 19th (note: received submissions, not postmarked!). The exhibit is planned for September 4th – 28th, with the artist reception on September 6th, from 6pm  – 10 pm.

From OCCCA for the Call:

Animals, real and imaginary. We fear them, pamper them, tame them, trap them, eat them, lobby on their behalf, experiment on them, strut them as status symbols, and exterminate them. How do contemporary artists represent them?

From the caves of Lascaux, to the halls of the Louvre, there is no escaping them. With their long pedigree in the history of art, they prowl the great museums of the world. And today, animals leap from the work of contemporary artists, symbolically expressing their ideas and emotions. OCCCA’s terrific exhibition space will showcase a menagerie of superb examples of this trend, from the traditional to the avant-garde, from the realistic to the fantastic, in painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, video and new media.
