Call to Artists for Undercurrents: The River as Metaphor Hudson Valley Artists 2017

The Dorsky invites artists to submit works for the 2017 edition of Hudson Valley Artists. Undercurrents: The River as Metaphor seeks work that reflects on modern tumultuous times and the way the Hudson River and its surrounds, its history, and its grandeur, reflects and aids us in keeping a clear and sustainable perspective, offering a roadmap to face hazards and address challenges.
“Muhheakunnuk” is the Native American name for the Hudson River, referring to its tidal waters that ebb and flow as it moves from the tip of Manhattan to Albany. Watching the river one can see the central line of demarcation where the waters diverge, magnetically attracted to opposing shorelines.
The river is a metaphor for life, death, human aspirations and challenges. Its beauty launched environmental movements, and it was used to transport immigrant groups seeking new homes and opportunities and slaves escaping bondage.It played a key role during the Revolutionary War and served as a passageway for battleships during WWI and WWII. These days, its wakes and waves bespeak the turbulence that marks our contemporary life.
Deadline: Friday, March 24, 2017, midnight.
Artists’ submissions must be made online only through the following website:
