Call For Art/Artwork Submission

2022 Call for Art Group Exhibitions


This year, four of our exhibitions will explore the four classical elements in ancient Greek philosophy and science: EARTH, WIND, FIRE, and WATER beginning the year with EARTH. We will end the year with our 2nd Annual A Year In Review open theme.

Human pressure on nature has soared since the 1970s. We have been using more and more natural resources, and this has come at a cost. Air and water quality are reducing, soils are depleting, crops are short of pollinators, and coasts are less protected from storms. Our nation has seen an increase of natural disasters from wildfires and mud slides to tornadoes and floods. However, the beauty of nature can also have a profound effect upon our senses, stirring feelings of awe, wonder, and amazement.

We are looking for a wide range of interpretations, from destruction and devastation to beauty and wonder. What is it that can move the observer?

Historically EARTH was commonly associated with qualities of stability, grounding, and strength. Earth energy is the beginning. It is our roots. To grow beautiful, healthy, and tall, trees must grow sturdy roots which stretch deep into rich soil. The earth element represents the densest and heaviest form of matter, and it is ruled by gravity. On our planet, we experience this as a downward pull. But if we take a second to widen our perspective, we can see that gravity is actually drawing matter towards the earth’s core from all sides; gravity, in terms of the Earth element, is an inward pull toward center.

We are looking for a wide range of interpretations, from destruction and devastation to beauty and wonder. What is it that can move the observer?

Earth Day is April 22. The 50th anniversary of Earth Day happened in 2020 amidst the covid-19 pandemic. The EARTH exhibit is in celebration of those 50 years and closes April 23.
