Waterfall Arts’ annual open call exhibition will take over its Clifford and Corridor galleries this spring. “Alternative Environments” will be on view April 5 to May 10. “Alternative Environments” will display works of art that explore alternative or unconventional spaces.

What might it look like or feel like to explore an alternative of unconventional space through art? What happens when unusual perspectives are applied to depictions of familiar surroundings? What might a human-made environment look like in the future? Artists near and far are invited to explore alternative environments, whether natural, mythical, fantastical or simply unfamiliar.

The annual open call show at Waterfall Arts is an opportunity for everyone to participate in the creative dialogue springing from the 2019 exhibition theme of Alternative Environments. Artists are invited to bring their work (one piece per artist) to Waterfall Arts, 256 High St., Tuesday through Friday, March 26 through 29, between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. All media are accepted, in 2D or 3D. Work must be properly framed for hanging or placement in a gallery setting and may be for sale.

The open call “Alternative Environments” exhibition will open with a 5 to 7 p.m. reception Friday, April 5. For more information, visit waterfallarts.org/open-call/ or call 338-2222.

Exhibitions at Waterfall Arts are made possible by the Onion Foundation, Morton Kelly Charitable Trust and the Maine Arts Commission, an independent state agency supported by the National Endowment for the Arts.
