Emerging Perspectives

FAA at Tall Grass Gallery

March 13 - April 17, 2021


Call for Art

Tall Grass Gallery of Park Forest invites member artists of the Frankfort Arts Association to submit entries for an invitational exhibit.

Deadline for Entries: February 13, 2021

Please read the guidelines and rules before submitting your entry.

New perspectives can emerge during times of change and 2020 was a year like no other. How has the past year influenced your art? Did any emotions come through in your art; did you use different colors; did your art take on a different tone or mood? Has a new perspective changed the way you approach your artwork?  Perhaps for you, your art was the one steady thing that didn’t change at all this year and that gave you a new perspective on everything else. Whether you made art to reveal your inner self, to escape from your outside surroundings, or to take comfort in the familiar, we want to see it.
