Craven Arts Council in New Bern, NC, Calls for Artworks Inspired by Poetry – Deadline May 3, 2018

March 31, 2018

The Craven Arts Council & Gallery is pleased to announce their call for artists for the 2018 “Fusion Poetry: Art” Exhibition at Bank of the Arts in New Bern, NC, held from May 4 – June 29, 2018. The Arts Council is seeking artwork inspired by poetry.

During the fall and winter of 2017 Craven Arts Council asked local poets to submit their poetry to be used as inspiration for visual art. Over two hundred poems were submitted, including both adult and youth categories. Craven Arts Council has complied the poems and posted them online so that artists can search through them and find inspiration for an original piece of art.

Artist are asked to visit (www.CravenArts.org) and look under the “Exhibits” tab for “Poetry: Art.” There they will find the full terms and conditions for the exhibition and a link to all submitted poetry. Each artist may submit one original artwork. Work will be dropped off and juried May 2nd and 3rd, 2018. Some work may be rejected due to space considerations. Artist receptions for the event will be held during the downtown New Bern Artwalks, May 11th and June 8th, from 5pm-8pm. Non cash prizes will be awarded for poetry, art, and the best fusion of the two. Craven Arts will also feature a youth division for the contest in the Director’s Gallery.
