The Art Of Aging

Share

Eligibility:

J. Mane Gallery in conjunction with Homewatch CareGivers® of New Haven invites submissions for The Art Of Aging online juried art exhibition.  

The onset of aging can be so gradual that we are often surprised to find that one day it is fully upon us. The changes to the senses, appearance, reflexes, physical endurance, and sexual appetites are undeniable-and rarely welcome-and yet, getting older has its surprising blessings.  Growing old is not a disease but an art. For those who practice it well, it can bring extraordinary rewards; Faith and inner strength, the deepening of personal relationships, the realization that career does not define identity, the acceptance that some goals will remain unaccomplished-these are among the secrets of those who age well.

For this competition, artists are encouraged to share their artistic vision of aging.  Artwork may vary from realism to surrealism to abstraction, and all 2-dimensional media will be accepted. All artists over the age of 18, regardless of location or experience, are encouraged to submit their best inspired work.

Special guest juror for The Art Of Aging competition is American, abstract artist, and co-owner of Homewatch CareGivers® of New Haven, Mary Elizabeth Peterson.  Mary Elizabeth is based in Connecticut.  She is a juried member of the elite Silvermine Art Guild and her work has been exhibited in galleries and museums throughout the North East. Her art has also appeared in TV and major motion pictures. Top retailers such as Lillian August, Pottery Barn and William Sonoma Home sell reproductions of her work.  You can learn more about Mary Elizabeth Peterson and her work at www.maryelizabethpeterson.com.

When it comes to elder care in the home, seniors generally require home care, home healthcare, or a combination of the two. At Homewatch CareGivers®, the mission is to redefine in-home care by caring for the whole person, not just their condition. Their in-home caregivers engage and bond with clients, all in the spirit of providing exceptional, dignified care. They match their caregivers to the needs of each client to ensure they receive the best possible care.

HOME Call for Exhibition

Accepted media: Photography, Digital Graphic, Digital Visual Design

Group Exhibition in Rome city. July 2020

This call intends to collect works that address the theme of "home", from its symbolic and conceptual conception to the exposition of an experience. "Home" as a concept linked to a safe and familiar environment, a refuge for our person, a social clothing that contains the warmth and energy of those who live there (q. M. McLuhan), or again, an environment that reflects our being in the world and the fluid changes of life, but also a place where we often find traces of the past, where emotional involvement is implicit in the experience we have in it. A. Muratore

Deadline 7th April 2020

Deadline:
