Jen Tough will be the juror for Marin MOCA's "Make Your Mark" exhibition
Hurry! Submission deadline: April 20, 2018 (by midnight PST)

Exhibit Dates: June 16 – July 29, 2018
Reception: June 16, 5 – 7pm

Artists use marks to create form, line, pattern and texture. Mark-making can be loose and spontaneous or intentionally controlled and structured. Marks can be descriptive, expressive, conceptual, photographic or symbolic, and appear across all genres of artwork from abstract to representational. A mark can be made with a splash or drip of paint, or a thread through space. From Vincent Van Gogh to Cy Twombly, mark-making has been an integral part of the artistic process yet it can be elusive to define. We’re interested in seeing how you make marks to create your artwork. 2D or 3D artwork will be accepted in any medium.
