Exhibition Summary:
This is a collaborative exhibition that asks artists to respond to the complicated and layered themes around “Migration” as part of a unique visual exploration. There is no juror or jury, just participation of your art is requested for several exhibition and installations in the next 2 years.

As a natural process migration brings to mind compelling images of caribou herds, butterfly swarms and flocks of birds. An annual ritual following the seasons that sustains these populations and supports others, connecting flora and fauna. There are also migrations that occur as reactions to disasters, from crisis, fear, hunger, political upheaval or war, with whole populations suddenly becoming refugees, endangered, homeless, and immigrant. The impact of change and transition on the environment, on culture, language and on history, is an eternal process that begins with the process of migration.

Each participating artist is asked to create a 15” right-angle triangular print. These triangles will be pieced together, regardless of orientation, to create one large mosaic print.
It is hoped this collaboration will explore this innovative creative participation as well as present visually the conceptual migration of themes and ideas, interactions and interpretations, as the individual becomes part of the whole.

To Participate: This project will be an ongoing traveling exhibition with various venues, beginning with the 2019 SGCI at University of North Texas, Denton at UNT Union Gallery, March 1st-15th, 2019.
