The theme under which this year's exhibit is curated is “The End of Words,” based upon the book of the same title by Richard Lischer. The theme may be interpreted broadly in a variety of ways and in a variety of media. New work is encouraged, but previous work may also be submitted. First, second, and third place entries will be awarded $200, $100, and $50 (respectively) in gift cards to the arts retailer/supplier of their choice.
There will also be an Artists’ Reception, open to all Duke Divinity School and the broader community, to celebrate all exhibit artists and their entries (Date/Time/Locale are TBA).
The Deadline for submissions is Thursday, March 18, 2010

(Image at above right: Lena McGrath Welker, from her 2004 exhibit "Navigation Cycle" at the NDMOA which inquired into the end(s) of words as well as the nature, limits, potentialities and structure of communication.Artist Biography: Welker comes from Oregon and her work grew out of her early years as a weaver. She makes densely layered installations about language both written and musical. She is interested in how communication takes place without either words or musical notations.

The exhibit "The End of Words" and its surrounding ancillary events are all sponsored, organized and produced by New Creation Arts Group (an official student group of the Divinity Student Council).Join us on facebook by clicking here.
