“A bit of advice, don't copy nature too closely. Art is an abstraction; as you dream amid nature, extrapolate art from it, and concentrate on what you will create as a result.”
  Paul Gauguin is proud to announce the Art Call “Light of Day 2018.” There will be 7 Winners and 10 Honorable Mentions. This competition is open to all artists and photographers worldwide. The participant must be 18 years of age or older working in any still art medium, including: painting, drawing, collage, photography, digital art, and fiber art.

Total Awards in Cash and Art Marketing Prize Value: $8,125.00.

Theme and Selection:

“Light of Day” can be interpreted  literally or conceptually.  Perhaps the sun as it rises to a new day suddenly presents to you an inspiring fascination which you creatively pass forward through an exciting new work of your own.  Nature’s light and your artistic hopes become realized and are seen fresh and renewed.

Artists may have visual concepts yet to be born through their art or photography that are awaiting exposure to the world. Also, there can be that moment in time when light has been captured in a work of art so beautifully that we become one with the artist’s dream or ideal passion.

The artist’s and photographer’s exciting, potentially enlightening moment may bring forth to many cultures art work demonstrating subjective concepts, philosophies, or even political expressions and worldwide aspirations. We look forward to seeing these works which represent either a literal or metaphorical portrait of your “light of day.”
