Themed Juried Show Call for Entry

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: Monday, April 11th, 2022 | Midnight (CST)
SHOW RUN: Saturday, May 21st, 2022 through Friday, June 17th, 2022
Top Prize $1,000All of our juried shows consist of 2 parts. In addition to the actual artwork, we require a written statement about the piece that describes how it fits the specific theme. This show is no different. We are looking for your favorite travel destination plus a written description of the location. The journal part of your entry can simply be the text you submit with your art that will be displayed alongside your artwork if accepted into the show. Subjects could consist of streets, cities, landscapes, statues, food, window shops, doorways/alleys, people, animals, seascapes and more.
Artwork representing a traditional travel journal is also completely acceptable. Hand-written text paired with imagery of the locale, keepsakes from the trip, maps, etc. all painted or drawn, of course. Even if text appears in your artwork, you are still required to submit a written statement specific to each entry.
WORK IS JUDGED ON
Theme Clarity – interpretation and the clarity of the work in relation to the theme
Originality – Creativity and originality of the work
Overall Composition – Quality of artistic composition and overall design
Overall impression of the artwork
