Juried Art Competition
Step into a world of contrasting shades and captivating simplicity at the Monochrome Reflections art exhibition. This curated showcase invites you to explore the power and allure of monochrome artworks, where black, white, and shades of gray take center stage. Immerse yourself in a visual journey where the absence of color allows for heightened focus on form, texture, and composition, unveiling a realm of artistic expression that transcends the boundaries of the vibrant spectrum. Open to all artists, regardless of location, and participants must be 18 years or older. Submissions in various mediums and skill levels are encouraged to apply. The deadline is November 30, 2023.
Through the absence of color, artists have the unique opportunity to delve deeper into the interplay of light, shadow, texture, and composition, creating evocative artworks that leave a lasting impression.
