A call-to-artists for Volume-2 of Waiting To Be Seen, to be shown at Lost Dog Gallery in Indianapolis during the month of February-2022. The vision for this show remains the same as the first show in September-2020:
“Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be seen.”
The concept of the exhibit Waiting To Be Seen is simple:
A creative collaboration in which I provide a selection of photographic images – from predictable to abstract – to a group of visual artists, 2D and 3D. Each artist selects an image that inspires them to create their own piece of art based on, not what they look at, but what they SEE. For me, the photographer, it’s for learning about Art and what makes Art work.
And for Volume-2, we are adding a new dimension, Ekphrasis*.
Literary artists will be invited to use the art of the written word in poetry to express what they also SEE in the selected images and visual artist creations. Details are pending for literary artists application process.
Prepared and presented in the face of a global pandemic, the September-2020 exhibit of WTBS was just plain fantastic – great art, great artists, great venue – success in my definition. Eighteen artists braved the tragic state of the world and offered their creativity to help me build the concept of WTBS for my first attempt to organize a show. (Amy Ward helped a lot…)
To help understand the concept, Here is a short video tour of WTBS-2020 and a full Virtual Tour generated by Lost Dog Gallery
Call for Artists: Waiting To Be Seen – Volume 2
Indiana resident and experimental photographer, Darrell Staggs, invites a group of diverse visual and literary artists to create interpretations of his photography work. All 2D and 3D visual mediums are welcome to apply.
How to Participate:
“Description” in Greek. An ekphrastic poem is a vivid description of a scene or, more commonly, a work of art. Through the imaginative act of narrating and reflecting on the “action” of a painting or sculpture, the poet may amplify and expand its meaning.
