Deadline for Robert Pope exhibition call extended. New deadline is October 31, 2017

Call for Submissions:

PICTURING HEALTH Photo Exhibit

at ViewPoint Gallery, Halifax

Deadline: October 31, 2017

Introduction
ViewPoint Gallery invites Nova Scotia photographers to submit photographic images for consideration in an exhibit about wellness and creativity. All Nova Scotia photographers, including ViewPoint members, are eligible. The exhibit will take place in February 2018. Each photographer selected for the group exhibit will receive an artist’s fee based on the minimum fee schedule recommended by CARFAC (Canadian Artists Representation/Le front des artistes canadiens).

Exhibition Theme
Submissions to the PICTURING HEALTH project are expected to use photographic imagery to explore the relationship between WELLNESS and CREATIVITY. WELLNESS incorporates not only physical health but also emotional well-being, spiritual awareness, and a balance of mind, body, and spirit. CREATIVITY combines the related ideas of innovation and creation; innovation transcends conventional ideas and patterns of thought, while creation refers to the process of making art objects, resulting in personal and meaningful engagement with one’s circumstances and surroundings. Life-threatening health challenges are inevitably disorienting; creativity offers a path for re-connecting with wellness. Submissions to the PICTURING HEALTH project will convey the conceptual underpinnings of HOPE, WELLNESS, HEALING, HARMONY, HOLISM, and CARE.

Background
The PICTURING HEALTH project is funded by the Robert Pope Foundation. Robert Pope (1956-1992) was a dedicated Nova Scotia artist who died at the age of 36 after a ten year battle with cancer.
