Opportunity Description

U.S. National Deadline: December 23, 2018 – Petz & Animalz stampede and stock the 3 Square Art Gallery this January & February 2019! See the fury, the friendly, the fierce and the wild. See how local and national artists create art using the subject of Petz and Animalz (what does the z stand for you say? Maybe the z is for zebra.. or zillions of new ideas.. or something new and different than just the typical!?)

Pets and animals have been an ongoing theme in art. Artists use animals in their work as the sole subject or with other figures and scenery to convey emotions and ideas that were previously unimaginable. From the earliest cave paintings to modern abstract works of art, pets and animals conjure our imagination of the wild or of the close and loyal friend. They create emotions and themes that we can relate to. Our bond with animals is as old as the notion of family. Bring out the purr of a kitten or the roar of a lion using realism or abstraction.

Accepted artists will be Juried for Gold and Silver cash prizes and 1st and 2nd Honorary awards. All accepted artists will be posted on the 3 Square Art website and our social media platforms. Top artists will be selected by 3 Square Art to be represented in our online gallery coming in 2019.

Exhibit Date: Thursday, January 31, 2019 – Friday, February 22, 2019.
