‘Kent Creates’ seeking Art for new online exhibit

The Kent Arts Commission is seeking entries for an online exhibit via ‘Kent Creates,’ a web platform for sharing art, culture, and creative endeavors.

The most recent exhibit for Kent Creates is open April 20 through June 30 and focuses on the theme of “On the Water.”

The call for entries reads:

One of the defining characteristics and significant benefits of living in the great Northwest is our access to and integral relationship with water. Water is all around us and sets the stage for many of our personal recreational activities, family traditions, and community celebrations. What do you do “On the Water”… swimming, fishing, boating, kayaking, paddle boarding, riding ferries, or just relaxing on the shore?

The “On the Water” exhibit is open to any creative endeavor – photographs, paintings, poems, recipes, short films, songs, or stories – anything creative minds can dream up. Work may be submitted through June 30, at which time the exhibit will close. The Kent Arts Commission will select the top five pieces, which will receive $200 honorariums and featured status on the site.

Kent Creates encourages Kent residents to be creative; it is a web platform for artists, musicians, writers, crafters, illustrators, dancers, filmmakers, hobbyists, and other creatives to share their work and meet people with similar interests. Creative work of all kinds may be shared on KentCreates.com. Kent Creates is free to use and anyone can sign up; there is no requirement to live in Kent.
