What is Rebuilding?

In 2017, nature and man brought destruction to places and people on scales previously unimagined. Yet, in the rubble of catastrophe, we discover stories of how communities and families work together, or how individuals create purpose out of their circumstance. 
Art has the power to capture the struggle and celebration of this rebuilding process and challenge us all to make something beautiful out of our own tragedies.
Addressing this theme of rebuilding – whether community, physical, emotional, or spiritual – Makervillage is pleased to announced that we are accepting entries for our first curated exhibit to be on display January 2018.

The Rebuild Begins









All artwork submitted must be an original piece made by the artist or group listed on the below application. There is no timeframe limit on when the artwork was made, so long as it fits within the general “Rebuilding” theme of the exhibit. All mediums welcome. This exhibit will be juried by the Makervillage Gallery Committee, a group comprised of artists and art supporters involved in the local creative communities.

DEADLINE: Art submissions must be received by Wednesday, December 13, 2017 via the online application form.

FEE: There is a non-refundable $25 entry fee per artist application. Artists can submit up to five pieces of artwork per entry fee. Entry fees go directly to the management of the Makervillage Gallery.

ACCEPTANCE NOTIFICATION: All applicants will be notified by Saturday, December 16, 2017.

PHOTOS: Please supply photos of your work or sketches of your artwork.

ARTWORK DROP-OFF: All accepted artwork must be dropped off at Makervillage (252 N. 5th Ave, Rome GA 30161) on or before Thursday, January 4, 2017. All two-dimensional artwork must be ready-to-hang with proper hanging wire. Makervillage has the right to decline any artwork that does not represent the photo and description submitted in the artist’s application.

ARTWORK SALES: Artists are responsible (and encouraged!) for the sale of their artwork to the public. Artist’s price and contact information will be listed next to each piece for interested buyers. Any artwork sold before the Closing Reception will need to remain on display the entire duration of the exhibit, and can be retrieved by the artist at the Closing Reception. Makervillage will NOT be processing payments or taking a commission on sales.

ARTWORK PICK-UP: Artists are to retrieve their pieces at the Closing Reception. If the artist cannot attend the Closing Reception, arrangements will need to be made in advance with the Makervillage Gallery Committee for a later pick-up.
