For six months of every year (one month for each persimmon seed swallowed), Persephone waits in the Underworld. She carries each dark day upon her shoulders until she can return to earth and ignite the Spring.
How do you pass the winter?
Are you also waiting?
Why do you wait, when you can make your own light?
UCAL is inviting artists of all ages to create a piece of artwork made with materials that create or reflect their own light. At the opening on Friday, February 8th (from 6 – 8 pm) the lights will be off. Visitors will navigate the space with a tea-light candle (battery operated) and the light generated from the works of art.
All artwork that meets the theme, providing that it in no way endangers the public or UCAL property, will be accepted into the show. Artist should be aware of the following stipulations, as entering a piece into the show means you have agreed to follow them:
Interested? Please contact the UCAL gallery, simply send an e-mail to email@example.com with YES TO HADES in the subject line by January 25th (2019!) and then drop your work off to UCAL on one of the dates provided:
Monday-Friday, January 28th – February 1st 10 am – 6 pm
Sunday, February 3rd from 2 – 6 pm
Sunday, March 10th from 2 – 6 pm
Monday-Friday, February 11th – 15th from 10 am – 6 pm
Any artworks still in the gallery after the final pick-up date become the property of the University City Arts League.
