Numbers are used to quantify, rank, prioritize, calculate, and measure. Depending on their context, numbers can be holy, encouraging, devastating, superficial, or so commonplace they are barely noticed. Many works that feature repetition or are part of a series inherently reference numbers. Open to all media, The Nth Degree is a juried exhibition that encourages artists to submit work that uses numbers or mathematics. These influences can be conveyed boldly, subtly, contextually, literally, or simply as inspiration.

We are pleased to announce a twelfth venue (!!!) for Threads of Resistance:

August 3-24, 2018
Experience Fiber Art
The Wilder Building
Rochester, New York

As of this posting, Threads of Resistance is scheduled to be exhibited in ten states!
The Artist Circle presents “Threads of Resistance,” a juried exhibition of work created to protest the Trump administration’s actions and policies.

We invite you to consider the theme “Threads of Resistance,” and create work – fiber art, art quilts, modern quilts or traditional quilts – to convey your passion, anger, or sadness about an issue that concerns you. Your work can be either positive (encouraging and unifying), or negative (portraying anger, sadness or discouragement). Possible themes include:
Refugee crisis
Climate change
Black Lives Matter/racism
Attack on science
and more!
Boats, Surf, and Beaches: Open Juried International Exhibition
Boats, surf, and beaches - whether combined or separate, active or passive, foreground or background - are often the intrinsic components of coastal recreation. Let your art interpret some aspect of these recreational themes.
ALRI Members, please call (401) 861-0500 or email us to receive your discount code.
Entry Deadline: February 24 

Juror: Anthony D. Tomaselli, Painter and Teacher, Fluer De Lys Art Studio, Providence, RI. 

Exhibition Dates: April 7 - May 27 at the VETS Gallery.
