Call for Artists: “All the World’s a Stage”

Artists Enclave of Denton County presents “All the World’s a Stage”, a juried exhibit of 2D art by Artists Enclave members only.


“All the World’s a Stage” will be exhibited Sept. 10th – Nov. 2nd at the Black Box Theatre, 318 E Hickory St., Denton, TX.


Q – Do my submissions need to be related to theatre or Shakespeare specifically?

A – Your submissions are your interpretation of what it means to say “All the World’s a Stage”. Examples include such ideas as “my life’s an open book” or “that story took center stage” or “every stage of life has its ups and downs”.

Q – Will prizes be awarded for selected works in the exhibit?

A – No prizes will be awarded for this specific exhibit.

It is a juried show but there are space constraints at the Black Box Theatre for   display and will award prizes at future larger juried exhibits open to the Artists Enclave Membership and/or general public.
