RiverArts Flash Exhibit: "Imperfection" (room one)

Flash Exhibit: Imperfection (room one)

Perfection may be an ambition, but as a destination, it is unreachable. In any attempt to achieve perfection, it is all too easy to discount, discard, and devalue the perfectly imperfect sites along the way. RiverArts invites you to prioritize the journey rather than the destination; the process, rather than the final product, in an online flash exhibit exploring the theme of Imperfection.

  • Works-in-progress, sketches, unfinished, and works that didn’t work out as planned are encouraged, as is any artwork that reflects on the theme of imperfection. 
  • The exhibit is open to work in all mediums, submitted as digital images for exhibition online. 
  • Artists of all ages may submit up to two pieces of original work. 

Online exhibit: Monday, March 8 through Friday, March 26

But, what is a Flash Exhibit?

In this time of rapid change and unpredictability, RiverArts introduces the Flash Exhibit: an online art show offering an opportunity for artists to show their work and for the community to connect with artists and their work in the context of the current moment. Less formal than a traditional RiverArts exhibition, a Flash Exhibit showcases the work of the talented artists in our community in a format of exploration and spontaneity. We invite artists to invite audiences into the process of art-making at any stage along the journey from the initial inspiration to the finished work.
