Calling all artists: ‘What Does Kindness Look Like’ to you?

TERRE HAUTE — In honor of National Random Acts of Kindness Month, which is in February, Arts Illiana is proposing a challenge: Create artwork that shows what you think kindness looks like for an exhibition.

The public is encouraged to paint, sculpt or create a piece for “What Does Kindness Look Like?”

An opening reception is planned from 6 to 9 p.m. Feb. 7 at Arts Illiana, 23 N. Sixth St.

Submissions dates are scheduled for 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Jan. 25 and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Jan. 27-29.

The exhibition is open to any artist 18 years or older currently a resident of the Wabash Valley and member of Arts Illiana. College students are also encouraged to participate. All artwork must have been completed within the last three years and executed without an instructor’s supervision.

All 2D and 3D work must be ready to hang or install. Maximum size must not exceed 5 feet in width and weigh less than 100 pounds.

An annual $30 membership to Arts Illiana ($15 for students) is required. Artists may submit up to four entries per show at no additional charge. However, due to space limitations, there is a $5 handling fee for each entry over four. (See exceptions for merchandise items.)

Merchandise type items include multiples of shrink-wrapped art, cards, jewelry or smaller 3D work. These items are not subject to the handling fee as long as each is clearly labeled and meets other specifications.

The juror will review each piece based on the following criteria: professionalism, presentation, pricing, display space available and public interest in the type of work.

All entries must be for sale. Artists are encouraged to provide a brief biography or statement about themselves along with business cards and a photo.

For more information and additional rules, contact Trevor Bridgewater, project coordinator, at or call 812-235-5007.
