Theme and Selection:

The artwork needs to be abstraction, where the image shows the artist creative views so that there is little or no representation of the real world.  The composition elements of the work must rely on form, color, shapes, action, lines, marks, and texture to create a purely abstract work that engages the viewer and draws them into the intention of the artist’s work. Artwork will be evaluated based on the creativity and uniqueness of the vision conveyed, the quality of execution, the interpretation and portrayal of the theme, and how clearly the artist's individual technique/style is presented in the chosen medium.

All submissions, which can be expressed from abstract, are welcome. The artists and exhibit will be extensively marketed on website.  We look forward to receiving your works.
