Texture

The accepted artists from the Texture call for submissions are:

Texture, the rich depth of the senses from visual, to touch, to emotional to spiritual, is something we’re drawn to as humans. It’s the grit that grabs us; the barrier that we cross over from physical to mental. Textured art is art that can either be three-dimensional or just feel that way. In this call to artists, we asked to see texture; rich, luscious texture. Or just a hint of it.

Monochrome

The accepted artists from the Monochrome call for submissions are:

Monochrome, meaning or implying shades of gray or a single color such as sepia, green, blue, red, yellow, combined with shades of gray or black, can be a powerful way to present your artwork simply. Conveying work without a huge range of colors can focus the viewer on the subject, or the composition. Monochrome art doesn’t necessarily apply to just photography, but to paintings, designs, sculptures, and drawings. In this art competition call we asked to see monochromatic art, black and white art, the artists’ fifty shades of gray.

Americana

The accepted artists from the Americana call for submissions are:

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:

artist April Aldighieri Smith from Simsbury, Connecticut: Photography On Metal Print

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.
