CALL FOR ARTISTS: "Purely Abstract: Visions in Line, Form, and Color"


“Abstract art is art that does not attempt to represent an accurate depiction of a visual reality but instead uses shapes, colours, forms and gestural marks to achieve its effect.” The Tate Museum

With its roots in early human history, abstract art has become one of today’s dominant forms of artistic expression. Recent exhibitions show that far from being indefinable movements set apart from the mainstream, abstraction in its various forms has produced some of the most memorable, influential, and best loved art of any era. Today, thanks to our interconnected world, abstract art has gone global! No longer limited to Europe and America, abstract artists from across the globe are expressing and communicating in the language of line, form, color, and gesture.

Healdsburg Center for the Arts invites visual artists from across the USA to submit their abstract art entries for this juried exhibition. Entries in all media will be considered including painting, printmaking, photography, sculpture, ceramics, and more. Artists may submit up to three pieces for consideration by the Jury.
