Call for submittals for the “Alternate Perspectives” Downtown Gallery exhibit

Local artists are invited to submit their work for the jurying phase of Gallery Main Street’s “Alternate Perspectives” fine art exhibit. The deadline for entry is midnight on Sunday, Sept. 30.

The description for “Alternate Perspectives” offers the following: “A show giving artists a chance to understand what one person sees is not always the same as what another’s view will be. Each person’s past, coupled with their personality provides a multitude of opinions and with that alternative solutions. One person might see a cloud as just a cloud while another sees a face, leaving both people with a different view of the same thing.”

Artists should visit DowntownTylerArts.com and click on “Gallery Exhibits” and then “Gallery Exhibit Information for Artists” in the left-hand column of the page. That link will lead artists to a page that provides all of the information they need, as well as links to the actual entry service site.

Information on Gallery Main Street hours and rules for entering the exhibit jury process can be found at DowntownTylerArts.com or by calling (903) 593-6905.
