Vision [vizh-uh n]
noun: visual perception, perspective, imagination, creativity, innovation, inspiration, intuition, perception, a pleasure to behold.
Appropriately named for our first show, Vision is about imagining something that's not and bringing it to life. Each Artist has a vision that inspires them to create and communicate their ideas with various mediums through their artwork. The Artists' vision defines them and provides a context in which they see and understand the world. Some artists focus on details while others on line or color or texture. No two artists will see the same thing. Who are these artists and why do they do what they do? And what can their art tell us about them?
Artists express how they see their world through their vision. Some artist may focus on details in a realistic manner, transform color into a non-objective abstraction or color field, focus on the texture, use symbolic elements to express their vision, or transform their vision into geometric shapes or lines. Artists have many different ways to express their vision even when viewing the same object.
We are looking for all kinds of work where artists create their vision using their unique artistic sense and style. Showoff your artistic vision to the world! It's open to all media types and styles including realism, abstract, minimalism, color-field, impressionism, expressionism, surrealism, symbolism, and more.
What can we learn from someone else's vision? Will their vision change the world or simply provide a whimsical smile? What's your vision?
