The Voice of Art Virtual Gallery
Call for Entry
October 31, 2019 – January 31, 2020
Submission Deadline: October 21st
The Voice of Art Virtual Gallery is inviting emerging and mid-career artists to its Juried Exhibition with artworks that speak to and share the personal meaning or interpretation of the theme of “Place/Space.”
An ordinary “place” can be transformed to your own personal experiential “space" as you enter the place and become part of its atmosphere or are interactively influenced by its nature. This personal “space” can be created from a physical environment, an abstract concept, a figurative object, or even a psychological idea through the artist’s interpretation. The artist is empowered to interpret a “place”
as a personal “space” for viewers to experience using their own personal interpretations.
Up to FOUR 2-dimensional artworks of in ANY medium, style, and subject matter based on
the theme will be considered by the TVOA Curatorial Committee.
The entries MUST be submitted in digital format via email.
