Eligibility: Accepted artworks include watermedia paintings on paper (watercolor, watermedia ink, watercolor pencils, powders, natural water-soluble dyes, as well as alternative media such as tea, coffee, etc.). Acrylics not accepted. 

Theme & Style of Artworks: The exhibition will accept original artworks of any style and artistic processing, representational or abstract.

Conceptual Framework: The most common and well-known concept of the word "Epoché"  in ancient Greek refers to the four seasons of the year: Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter. However, in modern language can be translated in to Age or Era as well: it can also refer to a historical period with distinct characteristics, cultural trends, or socio-political conditions - for example, we speak of the "Bronze Age" or the "Enlightenment Era." Similarly, it is included in more contemporary expressions referring to any period characterized by common situations, such as the "Internet Age" or the "Era of Globalization." Additionally, it can be used on a more personal level, where the "youth era" or "maturity era" is referred to, while in everyday language, a more abstract dimension is added, referring to a moment that has special significance, such as in the phrase "the era of great changes." The word "epoch" comes from the ancient Greek verb "ἐπέχειν" (epechein), which means literally "to hold upon," "to restrain," or "to suspend," carrying the meaning of suspension or cessation, with different meanings depending on the context.
