Artworks Center for Contemporary Art (ACCA) in Loveland, Colorado is seeking submissions for ENGULFED, an exhibition shedding light on the crisis of forest fires across the globe. Artists may respond to the forest fires by developing work that focuses on global warming, resource destruction, property damage, loss of life, wilderness protection, sustainability, political issues, fire mitigation, first responders, or broadly conceptual work dealing with the interpretation of “engulfed”. ACCA is a contemporary art center and traditional representational work may not be eligible. 


Sarah E. LaBarre is the Executive Director and Curator of Artworks Center for Contemporary Art. She has over 14 years of administrative and curatorial experience in non-profit arts organizations. She believes that art has the capability of transforming lives and is especially interested in points of connection between artists and the communities they live in. She holds an MFA in fibers from Colorado State University, a post-baccalaureate in fibers from Oregon College of Art and Craft, and a BFA in ceramics from the University of Arts in Philadelphia. Among other artist accomplishments, Sarah’s work is in the permanent collection of the Denver Art Museum.
