TALL TALES: CELEBRATING THE ART OF STORYTELLING

West Virginians are known to be excellent storytellers, as artists it is our duty to depict these narratives for future generations to behold. A key part of American folk literature, tall tales are believed to have started from the bragging contests that tough American frontiersmen would start when they gathered around a fire and for this exhibition we are asking Tamarack Juried Artisans to treat the David L. Dickirson Fine Arts Gallery as their fire and our guests as their audience to which they will brag. Whether we are passing down familial folklore at a reunion or sharing stories over at the water cooler, there are many legends, fables and fabrications that are begging to be shared and turned into long-lasting works of art. These “stories” can be fact or fiction in depiction and can be anything from a local legend to historical happening. Tamarack’s David L. Dickirson Fine Arts Gallery is inviting artists to submit two- and three-dimensional pieces that represent the fine art of tall tales!
