CALL FOR SUBMISSION:

“FLOW: The Essence of Paint” National Juried Exhibition
June 4 - 25, 2011

Flow is an inherent characteristic of fluids. Fluids such as paint dribble, drip, ooze, pour, run, spill, splash, spread, and squirt. And the brush stroke has long been synonymous with painting.

This exhibition will concentrate on the intrinsic properties that serve to characterize and identify the paint medium. The juror’s criteria for “FLOW: The Essence of Paint” will be based on the mastery of technique and creative use of the medium, as well as the qualities of composition, line, color, texture, and scale.

CATEGORIES ACCEPTED
Original artworks created primarily through the medium of paint, including Oil, Water-miscible oil paint, Acrylic, Watercolor, Gouache, Tempera, Encaustic, Enamel, Fresco, Air brush, Spray paint. These can be on canvas, paper, wood, glass, metal
