Time Apart will be an art exhibition of art created during the COVID-19 pandemic. While the world has been under quarantine, many artists have used this time to reflect and create. Some have even used the pandemic as inspiration. TAF invites community members of all skill levels to share work that they have created during our “Time Apart” in this exhibition that will be on view both online and at the Wells Community Cultural Center in January 2021. Interested artists may submit artwork using this form.

This physical component of this exhibition will be held in the Northwest Gallery at the Wells Community Cultural Center, which is owned and operated by the Tippecanoe Arts Federation. A companion project, Quarantine Chronicles, will also be featured in the gallery during January and will display stories of community members who have been affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. Members of the public are also invited to submit their stories here.

This exhibition opportunity is open to anyone in the Greater Lafayette community. All works displayed in this exhibition will have been completed during March – October 2020. While TAF hopes to showcase a diverse range of artwork through the Time Apart exhibition, space may be limited depending on the number of entries received. Please review the full Call for Entries document to learn more about the selection criteria and submission instructions. Artists wishing to apply should submit an online Entry Form no later than 5:00 p.m. (EST) on November 13, 2020.

Located at the heart of the Lafayette-West Lafayette Community at 638 North Street, the Wells Community Cultural Center serves as an anchor facility for the state-designated Tippecanoe Arts & Cultural District. A gift from Dr. Albert Wells to the City of Lafayette in 1926, this building served for many years as the main branch of the Tippecanoe County Public Library. Featuring three galleries, the Wells Community Cultural Center is now the hub of art resources and opportunities for the Greater Lafayette Community and North Central Indiana region. In addition to exhibition space, the Wells Building serves as multi-use cultural facility providing area artists and arts organizations with performance, rehearsal, meeting, and storage space. The purpose of the TAF Galleries is to provide opportunities for artists from north central Indiana to display their original artwork.
