Northville Art House - West of Center: Art That Pushes Boundaries

The Northville Art House is seeking original works of art in all two and three-dimensional media to be juried by sculptor, exhibiting artist, and art history and studio instructor Sergio de Guisti. In its 14th year, West of Center is about pushing beyond what is comfortable to create the unexpected. The center is safe and a repetition of the same formula over and over. This exhibition encourages artists to think outside the box and push past boundaries of everyday creativity and personal comfort; use tools, processes, and skills in unconventional ways; take risks with style by experimenting with color, media, details (less/more), and technique (loose/tight; consider scale (painting larger), materials (upcycled objects), ideas (go farther), and subject matter (contemporary); release expectations, be playful, and have fun. Entry Deadline: All entries MUST be submitted by Sunday, July 10, 11:59 PM EST. For prospectus and entry form, please click the links below. For questions, please email

 Over $850+ plus 1st Place winner also receives the opportunity to exhibit at The Northville Gallery
