The magic of a mask is its ability to either disguise the wearer or amplify a quality within us. It can also be your pathway from imagination to reality.

REemergence: the process of coming into sight and prominence once more

As we move beyond the liminal, what does our re-emergence look like? What do we leave behind and what do we bring with us? What do we hope for? What do we mourn? How does the work we’re creating today respond to both what has come before and what we want to express to the world now?

REemergence wants to give a voice to Artists after two years of pandemic instability.

They are seeking to invite diverse expressions to the conversation of why art is vital to the community. Artists are encouraged show us their re-emergence through their chosen medium.


  • Two-dimensional work in any medium is acceptable as long as it is smaller than 6ʼ (height) x 8ʼ (width) and can be displayed on the wall using picture hanging rods.
  • Three-dimensional pieces are eligible as long as they are smaller than 6ʼ (height) x 4ʼ (width) x 2ʼ (depth) and the artist can provide the appropriate sculpture stand for their presentation.
  • Wall-hung work can be hung framed or unframed and must include horizontal picture hanging hardware installed on the back of the artwork (no zigzag hardware).
    • Please note: curators will not construct any hanging devices. Work must be delivered ready to hang on a wall.
  • Digital works (Film, projections, time-lapse, etc) are accepted but the artist must explain the type of power source and format needed for their submission. Display will be at the discretion of the Curator. This work will not be for sale.


A maximum of 3 works may be submitted per artist. Entries must be received no later than the date listed on the calendar.

The Artist’s Vision Juried Exhibit reserves the right to decline any accepted artwork upon delivery if the condition or quality is other than represented in the electronic entry.


Applications will be reviewed by a jury comprised of selected individuals from varied backgrounds who embrace the philosophy and goals of the Festival of the Arts. Artists for the Artist’s Vision Exhibit will be selected based on adherence to the stated theme, originality, personal voice, and technical skill.
