OPEN CALL for Photography
In a digital world full of apps and instant reactions, the concept of art is an ever changing idea. InstaShow takes an in depth look at how social media is changing our art experience, both as artists and as viewers.
Spruill Gallery is seeking photographs and videos from artists and the everyday poster depicting the way that they use social media platforms to promote themselves and their art.
The display of this collection will illuminate the roll that social media plays in our ever changing concept of art.
