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 want to see your best artwork about water.Read More →

They can be utter chaos or orderly organization. In this abstract call for entries we ask that you show us your best abstract art.Read More →

But isn’t that what creativity evolves out of? Disturbance can be discontent, a different perspective, a conveying of hard truth, horrible unrest, or a reporting of injustice.
