Competitions Horizon: Contemporary Landscape
International Deadline: August 1, 2017 – This annual juried exhibit will test the limits of what you think of when you hear the word landscape! While many artists portray classic landscape paintings, others delve into more abstract realms, submitting everything from collage and photography to mixed media and cast metal sculpture.
All artists using visual media are eligible to enter the Horizon exhibition. All media will be considered with the exception of live or performance art. All work must have been completed since January of 2013 and not previously shown in any other Community Arts Center exhibitions.
The juror will be asked to select work (both two and three dimensional) that reflects and expresses the theme of Contemporary Landscape while demonstrating creativity, strength of execution, and overall artistic excellence with the goal of selecting a well-rounded exhibit that showcases a broad range of artistic styles and interpretation.
All work must be for sale.
The selected works will be displayed in the Community Arts Center from September 1 through November 10. An opening reception will be held on Friday, September 8 from 5:30-7:00 p.m. No early removal of artwork is allowed for any reason.
Size limitation: 72″ x 72″.
Accepted work that differs significantly from the entry images will be disqualified. 2-D work must be framed and wired for hanging. Any substandard presentation will be disqualified.
The Community Arts Center reserves the right to eliminate any entry that requires extensive installation.
