Where I'm From at Gallery RFD - Deadline June 25, 2009:

(Swainsboro, GA) � Gallery RFD seeks submissions for its upcoming exhibition titled Where I�m From.

Over the past two and a half years, Gallery RFD has had the pleasure of exhibiting artists and artwork from all over the globe, including over 300 cities, 40 states, and 20 countries. It is apparent that location influences an artist as much as anything, with subject and media being as diverse as the points of origin. This influx of geographical diversity begs the need to display visual representations of the places they are coming from. Gallery RFD seeks artwork for an exhibition titled Where I�'m From, which will feature compositions that are either inspired by, in response to, or a documentation of the place you call home. Awards will be given for Best of Show and Juror�s Choice.

Submission deadline: June 25, 2009,11 p.m. (EST)
Juror: Ger Ger, multi-media artist from Berlin, Germany.
