Rise: Call For Art Exhibition Curated By Erika B Hess, Painter, Curator And Host Of The Podcast I Like Your Work





Call For Art Juried Virtual Exhibition

Theme: Rise

After a series of setbacks or a difficult season as artists, we often use our work to rise again. Art can be a form of healing, processing current events, or overcoming a personal struggle. What does it mean for you to rise again and again? What role does art play in your resiliency?

We are thrilled to invite you to participate in our juried virtual exhibition exploring this topic. We welcome all media, and the theme is open to the artist's interpretation.

The jury of the competition will distinguish ONE best work from the selected photographs.

Awards and prizes

The best work is given the opportunity to participate in a creative incubator "Portrait Pathways".
