adjective: inducing or suggestive of a particular feeling or state of mind.
This year the Women’s Caucus for Art of Georgia will be showing photo-based work for Atlanta Celebrates Photography. We are delighted to have this exhibition juried by V. Elizabeth Turk and are asking that you submit work around the theme of MOOD.
Works will illustrate, suggest or convey a feeling or state of mind and/or leave the viewer in a certain mood. Mood can be personal, political, historical or cultural. What mood are you in? What is the general mood of the world? Depicting a mood involves entering into or visualizing a certain state of mind or connecting with a feeling.
Questions to consider: What changes your mood? What are all the different kinds of moods? When we talk about our moods we sometimes talk about the mood of the evening, the mood of a group, the mood of an artistic movement or symphony, the mood of the country or the world…What kinds of moods do we experience? Funny, sad, good, angry, peaceful, somber, calm, mysterious moods among so many others.
