June 2018 Juried Exhibition – Call to Artists

For June Juried Exhibition Show “X”

In honor of the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center’s 10th anniversary season, SBDAC invites artists to interpret the symbol X as the theme for the 2018 June Juried Exhibition.
Icons have power. They evoke memories, experiences, and information stored in the collective unconscious. Of these icons, the symbol X has many evocative meanings: X marks the spot. X speaks of intersections. X is numeric. X is the most controversial rating. X indicates elimination. X is where we sign. X is how we sign. X signals a choice made. X is a variable. X expresses the power of magnification. X is marked of an unknown identity.
Explore the meaning of this powerful symbol in the June Juried Exhibition as we celebrate a decade at the Davis!
