Open Theme



J. Mane Gallery invites submissions for its online juried art exhibition for the month of February 2019.  

“An artist is typically a being thetas filled with so much passion, love, or pain for certain lands, people ideas or images that all they can do with that overflow is bleed it out by creating. And with this type of art, the energy will be shifted from the depths of them, and in to the depths of the audience to be felt. It is a dance. A transference. An intimacy. It is to touch and awaken another human a place they hadn’t known was aching, or sleeping. Both are opened. Both are nourished. Both are transformed.”~Victoria Erikson

This will be an “Open” (No Theme) Online Art Competition.

For this competition, artists are encouraged to share their artistic vision and interpretation of any subject.  The artwork can vary from realism to surrealism to abstraction. All artists over the age of 18, regardless of location or experience, are encouraged to submit their best inspired work.
