Call For Entry: The Narrative

International Submission Deadline: June 15th, 2023 11:59 PM PST

Narrative art is a powerful means to explore and express aspects of the human condition. A narrative can tell stories about a wide range of subjects, recount tales from religion, myth, legend, history, and literature, or examine existential questions, such as the meaning of life, death, and the nature of reality. A well-crafted narrative can transport us to another time and place, entertain, educate, and inspire or help us to view the world in a new way, reminding us of our shared humanity and the beauty of the world around us. Tell us, what's your story?

The Narrative is an international juried group exhibition open to artists ages 18 and older. All forms of two-dimensional, traditional, and non-conventional art media (e.g., digital and film photography, video, oil painting, watercolor, acrylic, mixed media, collage, drawing media such as graphite, charcoal, pencils, pen and ink, arts and crafts, etc.) are welcome for submission.

Submission Deadline: June 15th, 2023
