Call to Artists


Annual Shirley Jackson Day Celebration Art Show **********




The inspiration for this year’s exhibition comes from Shirley Jackson’s 1958 novel “The Sundial.”

"WHAT IS THIS WORLD? The question inscribed on the sundial (a quote from Chaucer's Canterbury Tales, in "The Knight's Tale") echos through the book. The story explores a family’s response to an apocalyptic vision of the world... which seems an appropriate question for examination given current conditions. While we live on this world, we reside in our own worlds. What kind of world do you see? How have you constructed your world? What does your world look like these days?

Historically,”Phantasmagoria” refers to a spirit show in which magic lanterns were used to project ghosts and demons as “evidence” of their presence during a séance. How do you represent the incorporeal? What haunts you? What do you haunt? This is a show seeking all manifestations of ghostly conjuring, inspired by VISIONS, illusions, spirit writing, astral bodies, psychic HOTlines, ghost stories, spirit guides and more!
