ACA Member Gallery Show – Depictions: Earth, Life, and Our Shared Responsibility

April 3 - April 28

Artists for Climate Awareness is calling for 2-D and 3-D artwork to be displayed in a gallery exhibition April 3 – 28 at the Arts Alliance Center in the College Mall in Bloomington, IN

We are proud to be offering this juried exhibition during Earth Month, and we anticipate exceptional patronage during that time.

Bloomington is the hot spot for viewing the 2024 total solar eclipse, and we expect a tremendous influx of tourists to be in town, especially around April 8th. (https://www.greatamericaneclipse.com/indiana-2024-eclipse

We will be coordinating other climate awareness events related to this exhibition, including: a reception on April 12 featuring environmentally themed new music performed by an IU Jacobs School of Music ensemble; a pastel workshop by nature artist Avon Waters; and a climate-themed poetry and dance performance entitled “Stormwash: Climate Awareness” by Bloomington Writers Guild and Windfall Dancers, Inc.

Artwork may be in any 2-D and 3-D medium. Artists must be Artists for Climate Awareness or Arts Alliance of Greater Bloomington members, and can be from any state in the US.

This year, artwork will be juried for impact. This means that artists may have created any style of artwork, from representational to abstract, and can include lovely “prayer for preservation” pieces to catastrophic “call to action” artwork. Each artist must write a brief paragraph that is educational and explains how the piece communicates an ecological message– be that emotional, informational, or educational. (We will help with editing and refining your message as needed.)

See the show prospectus here.

See more about what kinds of art can convey climate or ecological messages.
