Happening now; Home Arts

The lockdowns of the previous year have provided us with finding new ways of keeping ourselves busy thus allowing many to either hone skills they already possessed in a craft or for some explore new ones. MAC has invited these artisans to show their usable arts.

Call for Artists

Works of art often tell stories. Artists can present the narrative in many ways—by using a series of images representing moments in a story, or by selecting a central moment to stand for the whole story.

Since pre-history Storytelling has been an integral part of human expression in every culture across the world. From the 30,000 year old cave murals at Lascaux that depicted a history of rituals and hunting, to when the idea of fairy tales came out of France in the 17 th century and even to our modern storytelling such as comics or storyboarding for the big screen.

Storytelling has become a way of conveying events in words and images as a means of entertainment, education, cultural preservation and to instill moral values into future generations.

Almost all Storytelling has been conveyed through or accompanied by some form of art, from the illustrations in a children’s book of fairy tales, to the Bayeux Tapestry which tells the depicts the events leading up to the Norman conquest of England in an embroidered cloth nearly 70meters in length detailing a historic event.

We invite you to explore the expression of Storytelling in any of its many forms and share it through the gallery. This show is open to all forms of storytelling from the written word, narrative illustrations, photography, true stories or fantasy.

Submissions are limited to three (3) pieces per artist and need to be delivered to the gallery with application form by August 30th.
