2022: YUGEN

Annual Regional Juried Exhibition
Drop off Art Dates: August 23-27 2022
Gala Opening Reception: Friday Sept. 2 @ 7-11pm 2022

2nd Sept. 2022 – 8th October 2022

Definitely Superior Art Gallery + Vox Popular Media Arts have joined forces to co-present 3 new exhibitions, regional | national | international and more… delving into the visually dynamic contemporary world of art.

YUGEN:  Is said to mean “a profound, mysterious sense of the beauty of the universe… and the sad beauty of human suffering”. YUGEN suggests that beyond what can be said, but is not an allusion to another world. It is about this world, this experience.

YUGEN, theme for the 34th Annual Regional Juried Exhibition, is an open regional call for entry format and is designed with the following objective in mind: that local/regional professional emerging and established artists are given an opportunity to consider the relevance of the concept of Yugen in terms of their own experiences, interpretations and relationships to current contemporary art practices. Call for submissions drop off dates: August 23 – 27 | 12-6pm | at Definitely Superior Art Gallery. All regional artists are invited to submit up to two artworks for their participation. Information at  www.definitelysuperior.com

DefSup + Vox Popular adhere to our mandates of identifying and encouraging contemporary artists working in all media and engaging ourselves to identify our place and role as contributors in the regional and national context. CARFAC fees paid to successful applicants.

Join us for the Gala Opening Reception and Birthday celebrations for a glittery 34th Anniversary of Definitely Superior Art Gallery and 18th Anniversary of Vox Popular Media Arts. This promises to be a huge and swishy spectacular event, as well an open invitation to the hundreds of artists/musicians/performers and volunteers for a grand and gleeful appreciation for all the work you do! It all starts Friday Sept. 2 @7-11pm with a ferocity of art, music, film, performance, ravishing catered refreshments and two adjunct art exhibitions!
