"The sky is the soul of all scenery. It makes the earth lovely at sunrise and splendid at sunset. In the one it breathes over the earth a crystal-like ether, in the other a liquid gold."
--- Thomas Cole 1801-1848
Art-Competition.net is proud to announce the Art Call “Scapes 3”. There will be 7 Winners and 10 Honorable Mentions. This competition is open to all artists and photographers worldwide. Total Awards in Cash and Art Marketing Prizes Value: $8,125.
Theme and Selection: "Scapes 3" - The judges for this art call welcome artists and photographers whose works provide viewers with unique interpretations of environmental settings—either viewed or imagined. These artists' visions may transport the viewer to a lovely landscape, cityscape, seascape, or mindscape which invites them to enter their realm of beauty, uniqueness, serenity, etc. However, works reflecting human impact against the land, seas, etc., always major concerns, are encouraged as well. The earth's landscapes are places of thought, meditation, reflection, tranquility, and at times sorrow. The landscape artists' creations are defined and weighted only by the depth at which their presentations enrich our heart and conscience. All representational, abstract, or surrealistic entries are welcome.
