Juried Show Call for Entry.

Seeking 2D paintings and Drawings.
Unconventional, novel and inventive are words that come to mind when we hear the phrase “think outside the box”. We invite you to push your boundaries and break away from the expected and mundane.

This theme has a wide interpretation, but in case you need ideas, we suggest exploring an unusual or distorted perspective. Maybe a bird’s-eye or ant’s-eye view. Use optical illusions or unexpected color choices like a green sky and blue land. Don’t overthink it! Challenge yourself and let your creativity run free.”

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: April 19, 2019 | Midnight (CST)
