This prospectus invites KMAA artists to submit artwork in any medium, that compels not merely one brief glance, rather lingering and thoughtful contemplation - and which causes viewers to reconsider what they had at first believed about the work and thus “ricochet” in the viewer's mind.
Our theme is very open-ended - there is much room for individuality in this compelling group exhibition. Whatever your technique or style may be - the result should induce us to look - and look again - to leave us rethinking what we have just seen. This fascinating exhibition will offer an experience that rebounds between artist and viewer- which will cause complex or enigmatic concepts or techniques to "ricochet" leaving one with a sense that things are not always what they may seem at first glance.
Submissions: March 2nd to April 2nd
