Extraordinarily Ordinary

Country:

Eligibility:

J. Mane Gallery invites submissions for its Extraordinarily Ordinary online juried art exhibition.  We came across this great quote by Marc Jacobs recently that we loved and sparked our creative nature…

”I always find beauty in things that are odd and imperfect—they are much more interesting”.

For this competition, we are encouraging you, the artist, to take something ordinary and make it extraordinary. Look for the subjects that people pass by or overlook and make them seen.

Artwork for this show can vary from realism to surrealism to abstraction, and all media are accepted, including 3-D. All artists over the age of 18, regardless of location or experience, are encouraged to submit their best inspired work.

We will be judging work in different categories for this show as well. And awards will be given for the top overall winning artists. The categories are:

Painting & Other

Photography & Digital Art

3 Dimensional
