Portrayal: Re-present

The Eagan Art House invites you to create or submit artworks for our winter exhibition, Portrayal: Re-present. How do we understand what it means to depict a person or place? Representation is rarely a simple record of a figure or scene. The artist has the power to shape the narrative in their work. Consider the following:

We invite you to express your vision and interpretation of portrayal and representation, either with a traditional or contemporary approach. We welcome a wide array of media — photography, textiles, ceramics, digital artwork, painting, drawing, printmaking, etc. We will accept any artwork for in-person exhibition that can be safely displayed on a wall and meets display requirements. We can accommodate some smaller 3D works; please contact us with questions before you register.

Works will be exhibited both virtually and in-person from January 6, 2022 through March 31, 2022. Artists may exhibit their work online only. All work submitted to be shown in-person will be included online. Both established and emerging artists are invited to participate. Content must adhere to Eagan Art House requirements.
