New Horizons: Landscapes 2020

New Horizons: Landscapes 2020, 3rd Annual Exhibition. Landscapes are one of the long-time subjects for artists taking in the beauty of their surroundings and representing what they see. But how has it changed in recent times? What new connections to our surroundings will be found or lost?

The landscapes around us are dramatically changing as well as our relation to nature. Furthermore, will we see landscapes as mere replications or photographs or can we apply color, light, design and texture to represent the larger essence of what we see or experience.

Just as impressionism, then cubism radically changed our perception of landscape art, what new interpretations are present today? We would like to see large as well as small formats. Broad strokes, fresh outlooks, meaningful dialogs, colorful blends or a monochromatic study... What's on the horizon for new landscape work?

We are looking for all types of works--painting, sculpture, photography and more--works that show off vision for landscape artwork. Small and large formats. Give viewers and collectors a chance to see the beauty of your landscape... The main criteria for selection is creativity and fresh approaches in the artwork.
