Kathmandu international artists in residency (KIAR 2025 – May / Swiss Citizens only)

Nepal is the Best Value Destination to travel. Nepal’s cultural landscape is every bit as diverse as its physical one. The spectacular Himalayas comprise the highest mountains on earth and boast a surreal landscape of snow-covered peaks sure to leave a powerful impression. The Himalayan country of Nepal, situated between India and China, offers some of the best access to these mountain peaks, where landscapes vary from subtropical valleys (complete with banana trees) to alpine forests (home to grazing yaks).

Fine Grit: Art & Ideas In Wood

Fine Grit is a national juried exhibition of contemporary artists who use wood as a primary material in their work. From traditional techniques such as hand carved sculpture, woodcuts and pyrography to more recent technologies such as laser engraving and 3D printing, artists have long used wood as a source material and medium. Wood comes directly from nature and each piece has its own unique lifecycle, evident in the processes artists and other makers utilize while working with it.

Particular interest will be given to artists who consider the origin of their materials and who use wood as subject matter, addressing topics such as forestry, ecology, architecture, human consumption and the changing climate.


Realism vs. The Abstract

A national juried exhibition. Color, forms, shapes, and subject matter are all concepts used by artists to express themselves through REALISM — art which aims to reproduce reality. By contrast, THE ABSTRACT is art which can convert those same concepts into patterns of color, forms, and shapes. Therefore, artwork of either genre can be submitted, This exhibition will attempt, by way of their formal arrangements, to draw associations between these two seemingly disparate genres.
