Ae announces 2011 Exhibition Schedule!

The creative minds of the exhibitions committee worked long and hard, considering and shaping ideas for future shows - and without further delay we're excited to announce our 2011 Exhibitions Schedule!

JAN: Agents of Orange
The artists of Altered Esthetics explore the visual impact and emotional resonance of the color orange.

FEB: Online (Dis)connect
Artists evaluate the pros and cons of technology and its impact on human thought, identity, and interaction.

MAR: Fanboi
Art inspired by fandom and devotion to characters, stories, or icons in film, music, or gaming culture.

APR: Flesh and Form
The body is a vessel for communication and physical expression. Artists depict what it means to possess, exist, and appear in human form.

MAY: Art?
This exhibit challenges the definition and function of art, seeking to discover the artistic value in anything and everything.

JUNE: Bike Art VI
Altered Esthetics' 6th annual bike art show brings together some of the Twin Cities' largest communities' artists, cyclists, and those who love both! Join us in creating another amazing exhibit of bike-themed photography, painting, sculpture and interactive art.

JULY: Hope of the Union
Whether you are still hopeful or left utterly disenchanted, this exhibition will allow artists to sound off about the ever-changing political atmosphere.

AUG: Comic Art

SEPT: Home
Whether it is a place we came from, a place we dream about, or a settling destination; artists react to immigration, homelessness, and what it means to have a sense of place in the world.

SEPT: Coloring Outside the Lines: Dinosaurs, Puppets and Forts
In this year's children's art show, everyone's a kid. Both children and adults are invited to let their imagination fly!

OCT: Fear Itself
Artists confront phobias ranging from the creepy, crawly, or things that go bump in the night, to the terrifying anticipation of social situations or life events.

NOV: Día de los Muertos
Altered Esthetics welcomes the community to gather for a cultural celebration of the lives of loved ones lost.

NOV: Food Fight
Artists blend notions of gourmet and staple, abundance and shortage, pleasure and struggle, production and consumption as they relate to food.

DEC: Animal Art 3: Rescue Me
Art gives a voice to those who cannot speak. Altered Esthetics looks to both celebrate and promote efforts to adopt, rescue, and protect animals facing mistreatment or abandonment.

We are also taking submissions for the 2011 Featured Artists competition. Those chosen will have their work featured in any promotional material for the show they submitted for, and will appear in Ae's awesome calendar. This year, any and all submissions to any show are free.
