Make Me Laugh :: Online Exhibition Call for Entry
Laughter is the best medicine. It strengthens our immune systems, boosts our mood, diminishes pain and helps protect us from the damaging effects of stress. Laughter helps to bring our minds and bodies into balance. It seems like if there was ever a time for a good laugh it’s now. So let’s make each other chuckle, giggle, grin, roar, shriek, snicker, whoop, titter, cackle and belly laugh. Use laughter for its greatest purpose, to trigger positive feelings in others and foster a sense of group unity.
All forms of work can be submitted for this online exhibition, including wearable art, 3D sculptural work, 2D felt or installation. Keep in mind that smaller works often show better in an online format. There is complete freedom in technique, style, colour and form. Tap into your playful side. Draw from what you find funny. The ridiculous, absurd, joyful, silly, ironic, surprising, whimsical or amusing. Perhaps a great one liner or your favourite pun. All members of felt :: feutre canada are encouraged to submit. Laughter is contagious!
Online Submission Open: February, 2022 Entry forms will be posted on our Website before this date.
Deadline for Submissions: March 1, 2022
Online exhibition will be posted on the website: April, 2022
