These are strange times. Horrible times. Purging times. Trump and the Weinstein scandal have sharpened our radar. We are now in a different awareness. We all have been affected by predators from every angle possible. It’s a time for expression. It’s a time for clarity. It’s a time for change. It’s time for redemption. We asked in this open international art call that the artist expresses artistically how they feel about this time and predators. We asked them to define the word predator.

Our water-themed open art call was named “H2O”. Water, whether we acknowledge it or not, is our everything. It’s what we’re made of, what we need to survive, what calms us, and what makes up most of our earth. It’s also what we tend to obsess about in art from oceanscapes to lakeside images to swimming pools to the water that makes up our bodies. It’s so inclusive that everyone knows what the chemical name is, H2O, two atoms of hydrogen and one atom of oxygen. In this H2O open art call we asked to see an artist’s best artwork about water.

There are entire worlds happening on a smaller level than you can actually see or comprehend. When you open your eyes to it and really see it, you begin to understand that our universe is larger on so many levels. Zoom In is a call for artists who can get close up in a macro sort of way to help the viewer understand what lies beneath and within.

We, as humans, favor beauty. Beauty is a common open art call. We love it. But there is a contrast, and even a similarity to something or somebody ugly. Ugliness is a part of life, and sometimes to just embrace ugly artistically and emotionally an artist can find truth and acceptance, and beauty in everything. In this open art call we asked artists for their version of ugly, which may be beauty. It’s all subjective and it always enlightens.

There are so many delicious things in abstract art that don’t necessarily cross over into realism. You can get lost in abstracts, creating them and viewing them. They awaken the senses in a completely different way than in “regular” art. They can be completely unique depending on the medium from a mix of color, or line, or texture or depth. They can be utter chaos or orderly organization. In this abstract call for entries we asked that artists show us their best abstract art.
