CALL TO ARTISTS: “Sights and Sounds: Rhythms and Scales”
JUROR: Kevin McEvoy
ENTRY DATE: December 23, 2019
Ansel Adams once said “When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.” The Huntington Arts Council invites artists to submit work that meets at the intersection of visual art and music. Does your work exude rhythm, melody, lyrics, harmony or dissonance from a social, political or musical perspective? Does it elicit a reaction in sounds, words or movement? Does it dance or sway? Does it move, or move the viewer? Does it sing?
“I’m not so concerned with originality, I’m not after that artist statement that shocks us with its newness. It’s really just simple. I just paint what I am with, where I am. I simply relay the story before me, the way the neck of a violin is worn down by a century of playing, the lyrical silhouette of a woman’s neck, the distant stare of a Vietnam Veteran. I’m fascinated by common things.” Kevin McEvoy, Juror
