Opportunity to exhibit at Target Gallery

the national exhibition space of the Torpedo Factory Art Center, hosting 9 juried shows
a year, with themes that vary.
“Pandora¹s Box” is an exhibition requiring artists to create work based on the
theme of ³Pandora¹s Box² .  In Greek mythology, Pandora¹s box is the vessel
carried by Pandora that contained evils to be unleashed on mankind < ills,
toils and sickness < and finally hope.  For this exhibition, the artists are
invited to submit their own interpretations of Pandora¹s Box and how it
relates to the times we are living in today.  The submitted work must be
based on a container form and the maximum dimension of the container can not
exceed 12 inches in any one direction. The work inside may stay within or it
can explode from the box, peek outside the box, etc – however, it may exceed
the 12² but must  fit within the gallery¹s limitations (see ³Limitations² on
back) How it is made and what it is made of is entirely up to the artists.
