Americana

Americana, a broad term, as in all things American. America is wide in experience, size and interpretation, in a small amount of history and yet, historically brilliant.In this open art call asked to see the artist’s interpretation of Americana. For everybody, America is something different. We want yours. Is it the Wild West? Is it the time of the American Revolution? The Cold Ware? The 60’s? Is it the political realm, currently taking over the world? Is it the original Americans? Is it our abuses? Is it our triumphs? Is it our leaders? Or is it simply one American you admire? In this open art call we asked to see the artist’s interpretation of Americana.The following artists were chosen from this call for entries:

Reflections

The Reflections call for entries accepted artists are:

Reflection is defined as “The throwing back by a body or surface of light, heat, or sound without absorbing it.” But it’s more than that. It’s the contemplation of the spirit and mind. It’s the light that bounces back into us and the darkness. It’s the thing that all sensation and thought evolves from. In this call for submissions we asked to see the artist’s interpretation of reflections, their take on all surfaces, whether physical, spiritual or intellectual.
