Carolina Artist Gallery in Morehead City, NC, Calls for Entries for “Heart of a Man” Exhibition – Deadline Nov. 2, 2014

October 8, 2014

That man in your life dragging you down or, on the other hand, “rockin” your world?  We all have relationships with men.  Some are good.  Some are very good but others are unpleasant or downright  bad. “Heart of a Man”, a show by Carolina Artist Gallery, in Morehead City, NC, will feature art that tells the story of our relationships with men. All have a father. Some were kind and loving; others were self centered and demanding. Some were just down right mean. Others were missing or not around much. Many have or have had a husband or significant other. Again, some of those men were respectful, loving and made the world wonderful. Others brought conflict, anger and disappointment. Many have brothers, sons and uncles. All have male heroes and male villains. Tell us the story of these relationships through art.
