A National Open Call to Artist
to exhibit in Beacon Artist Union (bau gallery)
The Mayan Long Count Calendar culminates on December 21, 2012. Some refer to this as the beginning of End Times or Armageddon or the Apocalypse while others decipher the writings of the Mayans to mean the end of one long cycle and the beginning of a new age of understanding and enlightenment. Whatever your beliefs, December 21st, 2012 has piqued the interest of a large intersection of Religions, Science, Pseudoscience and prophesies offering endless scenarios.
So while we ponder and wonder what we will wake to the morning of Dec. 22nd and wonder if we will still be here or wandering the earth as man eating Zombies, we ask artists to respond to the concept of “Apocalypse”. Show us your vision.
Juried by Beacon Artist Union (BAU) and Gallery Director Carla Goldberg of Skylight Gallery NYC in Manhattan and Gallery Director Gary Jacketti of Beacon Art Shortwave Gallery, Stone Harbor, NJ.
