Oak Park Art League | 720 Chicago Ave. | Oak Park | 708-386-9853
August 11, 2017 - September 1, 2017
Opening Reception August 11, 7-9pm

By the time August rolls around, the intense temperatures and humidity that characterize the summer season have engulfed us. We waited all winter for this warmth, but now crave a brief respite in a cool drink, air conditioning or a dip in the pool. And with global mean temperatures on a steady rise, we are on track to set a 17th straight record this August. For this open call exhibition, the Oak Park Art League challenges artists to offer their homage to “heat,” in any iteration: subject matter, materials or tone. Up to three 2D or 3D pieces of art in any medium will be accepted, with special interest in works that incorporate heat in the process of making, such as kiln firing, encaustics, pyrography, solar prints, etc.

Judged Show - 1st, 2nd, 3rd, Honorable Mention and a People's Choice Drop off work August 5-9 | Pick up work September 2-6
