CALL FOR ARTISTS: “Touched with Fire”

Kaviar Forge & Gallery is currently accepting submissions for our upcoming exhibition, “Touched with Fire!” This show will be an exploration of the theme of mental health through visual artistic expression. Each year millions of Americans face the reality of living with a mental health condition. The show begins in the month of May for Mental Health Month. We are partnering with Bridgehaven Mental Health Services, and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the organization. Through this exhibition we hope to educate the public, fight stigma, and raise awareness of recovery services that support those touched by mental illness.

“Touched with Fire” will be a juried group show of 2D and 3D work surrounded around the theme of mental health; all media and interpretations of the theme will be considered. The show will be displayed at Kaviar Gallery from May 19th to August 6th with an opening reception held May 27th from 6:00 - 9:00PM during the F.A.T Friday Trolley Hop!
