Call and Response

Deadline: August 11, 2020

Art has the power to communicate, inspiring and contributing to meaningful dialogue and the exchange of ideas. Call and Response explores this notion, recognizing the many ways works of art can spark conversation, action, and aid in the processing of ideas, feelings, experiences, and events. For this exhibition, Crooked Tree Arts Center is seeking original works of art that consider these ideas.

Artists are encouraged to consider the theme broadly and creatively.
Possible approaches to the theme include:

  • Works of art that inspire or encourage viewers to take action
  • Works of art that encourage artists to “respond” with their own creative work
  • Works of art created in response to another creative work (visual art, film, writing, etc.)
  • Works of art created in response to an event, experience, or established idea
  • Works of art created in response to a feeling or intuition

All media are eligible for entry. This call is open to all United States residents, 18 and older.

The exhibition will be on display in Petoskey’s Bonfield Gallery, September 21 - December 18, 2020.


This opportunity is open to all United States residents. Works must be original works of art. All media are eligible.
