“VICES” National Juried Exhibition
“VICES” National Juried Exhibition at Arc Gallery
DEADLINE: September 13th, 2021
“Vices are simply the errors which a man makes in his search after his own happiness.” – Lysander Spooner
We are all just bundles of vices, collections of actions that aren’t necessarily good for us, that have the potential to hurt our bodies or minds, our relationships, our financial or work prospects; things that feel good in the moment, but are maybe not so good for our futures. We are seeking works that depict vices in all their wicked glory. It can be your own secret vice or something you’ve observed. Examples include drinking alcohol, smoking, gambling, prostitution, promiscuity, shoplifting, taking drugs for pleasure, over-indulgence in rich foods, driving over the speed limit, receiving kickbacks or bribes, failing to recycle, blackmailing, or cheating. We await your interpretations from humorous to moralistic to sleazy.
