Call details: Open to: all mediums. Paintings, Sculpture, Installation art, Video art, Mixed media, 2D & 3D works.

Submitted artwork should fit or complement the theme “Elephant in the Room” which can be either conceptual or literal in context:

Media themes seeking: controversial, hidden agenda, taboos, secrets, discrimination and uncomfortable issues.

“Elephant in the room” is metaphorical idiom for an obvious truth that is either being ignored or going unaddressed. The idiomatic expression also applies to an obvious problem or risk no one wants to discuss, It is based on the idea that an elephant in a room would be impossible to overlook; thus, people in the room who pretend the elephant is not there have chosen to avoid dealing with the looming big issue.

An important and obvious topic, which everyone present is aware of, but which isn’t discussed, as such discussion is considered to be uncomfortable.

There will be a panel discussion as well as a month-long interactive piece inviting the community to share their ‘elephant’.

Artists are welcomed to participate in a community outreach art project with local at-risk youth. Artists who are interested in volunteering in the art project please contact the producers of the show. All participating artists are encouraged to participate in all of the events; however, the only requirement is to be available the opening night.

Cosmic Connections
The cosmic gauntlet is down. We ask all emerging and established artists, 18 years of age and older to respond to our theme “Cosmic Connections”. Are we connected to the Universe? Are we alone? Is the Universe in us? Do you feel the ”cosmic wind”? I ask you to go outside and look up in our sky and picture yourself as a deep seeing artist that sees our world now, just as that small group of artists once took their paints outside and looked to the sky for their inspiration. Later they were called the impressionists. Unaccepted at the time they pushed their world forward. Try to arise to our invitation. Cosmic Connections is our juried exhibition shown during the Basel week in Miami. An esteemed jury will choose artwork based upon artistic excellence, innovation and originality.
