Exaggerate! Theme Exhibtion Call for Art and Writing Entries

The greatest exhibition of art and tall tales ever seen by mortal man is coming to Old Forge! The Arts Center/Old Forge is looking for visual art and short written works (poetry and tall tales) created with the theme “Exaggerate!” for display from May 9 – June 6. With entries from throughout the Northeast and beyond the result should be an out of proportion, overblown, not entirely accurate exhibition of fine art and written works. This is a chance for artists and writers to express feelings rather than facts, and to transport viewers beyond the bounds of reason.

The exhibit is open to all living artists and writers ages 16 and over. Humongous ribbons, and monetary prizes will be awarded. First, second, and third prizes in both visual art and writing will be chosen as well as the “We Know Best Award” determined by the votes of the viewing public.

The Juror of Visual Art for this is Katherine Kuharic, a painter, and the first Kevin Kennedy Professor of Art at Hamilton College. The Juror of Written Works will be Joseph Bruchac, renowned author, and founder and co-director of the Greenfield Review Press.
