FLYOVER COUNTRY

ENTRY DEADLINE - DECEMBER 15

EXHIBITION DATES - FEBRUARY 22 - MARCH 15, 2019

OPENING RECEPTION - FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 22, 7 - 9 P.M.

The vast expanse of land between the East and West coasts may be one that is often overlooked and referred to as "Flyover Country", although there is tremendous pride found in the people of the American heartland and a strong presence of talented photographers. In this exhibition we are looking to identify photographs with an aesthetic that emerges from the land and culture of the center of America through portraits, documentary approaches, and images of place. By curating a boldly Midwestern story through photographs, we hope to expose visual impressions of how ordinary people, familiar land, and domestic environments establish a truth that speaks to America's strengths, fragility, and even its flaws. At a time when urban and rural parts of the United States are becoming more divided, having an avenue for conversation and mutual appreciation through visual narrative is key. Flyover Country will focus on appreciating the beauty, individuality, and vastness of an aesthetic that is uniquely Midwestern American.

Open to all photographers nationwide in the USA. All photographic media is welcome. Various photographic interpretations will be considered from artists residing in the Midwestern states, as well as artists outside of the region making photographic commentary on aspects of the Midwest.

Selection will be based upon the series of work submitted by each artist rather than solely on individual images. A brief artist statement is preferred but optional.

Selected artists will have their work featured in the exhibition and online.
