Crowded


Crowded can be interpreted in different ways. It often has an urban meaning throngs of people in the city leaving no room for movement. But it can also be all that stuff going on in your head.

Cuisine & Beast


We broke with tradition this time, for time’s sake. We combined two call for entries that seemed to go together well.

Cuisine Call for Entries:

Food art is truly a still life that inspires us to eat or educates us about our food or food preparation. This Cuisine call for entries is about making us hungry or making us not want to eat at all. We asked to see the artist’s interpretation of food.

Beast Call for Artists:

The Beast call for entries is a call out for all art pertaining to animals. All animal classes will be considered from bugs, to reptiles, to mammals, to birds to amphibians. We asked to see the artist’s animal art.

Nobody knows play better than an artist. Art is our form of play, of exploration and a means to creativity. In this open art call we wanted to see play, or the artist’s interpretation of play.

Landscape

Landscapes have an historic base in art culture. The scenery of the countryside has been the topic of most landscape art for centuries. But landscapes can be so much more from the great wide open spaces to the mountainside to the city skyline. Whatever vista lies in front of you is the terrain of your landscape. And it doesn’t have to be horizontal, though that is what has become synonymous with the word thanks to the computer world. In this open art call we asked to see an artist’s incredible landscape art.
