Opportunity Description

International Deadline: January 27, 2019 – 3 Square Art announces an open call for artists for its upcoming exhibition of non-objective abstract art. 3SA Exhibitions are open to artists residing in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico only.

The theme of Non-Objective Abstract Art can refer to Non-Objective Art or Non-Representational Art, which does not seek to represent specific objects, people, or other subjects found in the natural world, but instead relies on shape, line, and form with no particular subject. Non-Objective Art is a pure abstract style that typically uses geometric motifs on a shallow picture plane. Art that has no illusion of pictorial depth made by linear perspective in the image and is purposely devoid of any references to worldly things or object.

We are looking for all types of works–painting, sculpture, photography and more–works that show off your ability and creativity to work with the subject of non-objective abstract art. Give viewers and collectors a chance to see your capabilities. The main criteria for selection is creativity and fresh approaches in the artwork and use of the subject matter.

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: Friday, March 8, 2019 – Friday, March 29, 2019.
