Metallic mirage call to artists.jpg

DEFINE ART GALLERY AND STUDIO invites submissions for their METALLIC MIRAGE ART EXHIBITION, providing artists with the opportunity to showcase their work either in the gallery or online throughout August and September 2024. This juried competition is open to 2D and 3D visual artists across the USA, seeking artwork that incorporates metal, is influenced by metal, or embodies a metallic essence for both physical and digital displays.



The Metallic Mirage ART EXHIBITION at DEFINE ART GALLERY AND STUDIO invites submissions across various mediums and styles. The "Traditional" category embraces diverse 2D mediums such as painting, drawing, pastels, inks, pencil, printmaking, encaustic, fabric, and mixed media. For those inclined towards "Photography & Digital" art, avenues include analog and digital photography, digital photo artwork, painting, manipulations, collage, vector drawing, and mixed media. It's important to note that derivative digital works should demonstrate significant deviation from the original to be considered new. The gallery may request the original artwork to ensure compliance with copyright laws. In the realm of "3-Dimensional" art, creativity knows no bounds, with opportunities for relief, pottery, sculpture, installation, kinetic, and conceptual pieces crafted from metal, paper, wood, stone, fiber, plastics, glass, ceramics, or any other material suitable for 3-dimensional artistry.
