Liminal Spaces | Juried Exhibition

Country:

Organisation:

Eligibility:

UPWARD Gallery invites artists worldwide to submit artwork to our juried art exhibition and competition, Liminal Spaces.

One of the important themes in modern art has become liminal spaces, or spaces of transition, that is, disturbing and attractive spatial gaps that have acquired an independent meaning. They are read by the subconscious, even if we are not aware of this, and leave a deep emotional trace.
How is this theme reflected in your art? What figurative means do you use when working with liminal spaces in your works?

All artists 18 and older are encouraged to submit their work in any medium, style, and genre.

Acceptable mediums include all traditional art media (e.g., oil, watercolor, acrylic, pastel, mixed media, gouache, egg tempera, pen and ink; drawing media such as graphite, charcoal, colored pencils, scratch board, markers, metal point), digital painting, arts and crafts (beadwork, pottery, embroidery, floristry, batik, stained glass, two-dimensional collage and fabric art as well, etc.).

All accepted pieces will be displayed in our online gallery at upwardgallery.com. 

The winners (1st place) are interviewed by the UPWARD Gallery editors for publication in the printed edition UPWARD’s Quarterly and on our site.

Each entrants of the competition receives a personal page in the UPWARD gallery, where they can show their art and tell about themselves. 

Selected works will be featured in curated galleries on our site.

All entrants will receive electronic certificates based on the results of the competition.

Deadline: 
22/January/2023
