Call for Art: “Nocturne” National Juried Exhibition

Opportunity

Arc Gallery & Studio (San Fransisco, CA)

“Nocturne” National Juried Exhibition 2019
DEADLINE:  September 9th, 2019
THIS CALL FOR ARTISTS IS NOW OPEN

DESCRIPTION
The word “Nocturne” conveys a dreamy, pensive composition or works of art dealing with the coming of darkness. We are seeking works that are evocative of the night, subjects as they appear in a veil of light, twilight or the absence of direct light. This theme lends itself to works that are tonal in nature, so works using soft, diffused light, muted tones and hazy outlined objects are welcome. We also invite artists to explore subjects associated with the night such as nocturnal animals and birds, people working the night shift, landscapes and cityscapes at night, and nocturnal fantasy creatures such witches, vampires and ghosts. And finally, artists whose favorite color is black are invited to submit works in that tone.  
 
CATEGORIES ACCEPTED
Sculpture, painting, drawing, photo, printmaking, ceramics, assemblage, collage, mixed media, fiber art, glass art, artist book
 
SUBMISSION FEE
$35 per entry, with up to 3 pieces per entry

JUROR:Jennifer Perlmutter, Jennifer Perlmutter Gallery, LaFayette, CA

Great art speaks truths we can all understand, and shares beauty that enriches our lives. It’s transformative and healing. And I want to share that.
