A bit of advice, don’t copy nature too closely. Art is an abstraction; as you dream amid nature, extrapolate art from it, and concentrate on what you will create as a result.”
Fifteen artists will be selected for an online group exhibit, “Flowers & Gardens 2019” at Gallery25N; the exhibit and artists will be extensively marketed worldwide to over 21,500 people including art buyers, gallery owners, curators, collectors, etc.
One artist’s work will be selected to receive the “Christopher E. Burke Fine Art Grant” of $300. That artist’s work will become the image of the exhibition and will be used on the invitation, video title screen and on all online marketing.
Theme and Selection
“Flowers & Gardens 2019” – The curators are looking for art work that honors and reflects the beauty and calm dignity of nature as it is expressed in flowers and gardens.
Artists and photographers throughout history have created some of their most beautiful, memorable works of art through their appreciations of inspiring flowers and gardens that symbolize continual rebirth, fresh beginnings, fragile persistence, and alluring symmetry against many odds. Regardless of art form, when an artist becomes “blocked,” nature frequently offers him or her a new spiritual foundation and motivation. Be it a single flower, a garden in full aromatic bloom, or a “shy” plant on a window sill, there is no mistaking the awesome complexity of the planet’s precious vegetation. This abundance of flowers and greenery inspires and challenges the creative mind to redefine and/or simply glorify their splendor.
This competition is open to all artists/photographers 18 years of age or older. Submissions for consideration can be expressed in any of the following aspects: representational, expressionism, surrealism, or abstraction.
