Shadow and Light: an exhibit celebrating the 2024 Solar Eclipse

SHADOW AND LIGHT an exhibit celebrating the 2024 Solar Eclipse - 1

Concept:

The Arts Council is hosting a shadow and light themed art exhibit to commemorate the Solar Eclipse on Monday, April 8, 2024. With so many visitors in the area the weekend before the eclipse, it is a great time to show off our local and regional artists!


This exhibit aims to celebrate this celestial event with the use of shadow and light in either the artistic representation with 2D media, the use of light through the media, or multimedia pieces that use light as a component in the artwork. The juror will be looking for the following examples:

  • artwork in any media with high contrast of shadow and light
  • artwork depicting the theme of shadow and/or light
  • artwork done in media that plays on shadow and light (i.e. glass, transparent paper, multimedia pieces that use light in the installation)
  • Here are examples of shadow and light historically used in art:
