Open call to all artists to address the complex theme of “home.” All mediums encouraged, painting, photography, performance, sculpture, mixed media, video, and sound.

A place of home has very different meanings to all of us. Sometimes it is a memory, a sense of place, a person, a dream, a certain chaos, a metaphorical anchor, a roof over our heads.

“I had three chairs in my house; one for solitude, two for friendship, three for society.”
-Henry David Thoreau

“Home is a name, a word, it is a strong one; stronger than magician ever spoke, or spirit ever answered to, in the strongest conjuration.” -Charles Dickens

“Going home without my sorrow
Going home sometime tomorrow
Going home to where it’s better than before.
Going home without my burden
Going home behind the curtain
Going home without the costume that I wore.”
-Leonard Cohen.
