CALL FOR ARTISTS!

art629 is looking for
Artists to submit work for our upcoming exhibition "Floral Muse" which will be opening this March. 

 

Either as a background detail or as the focal point, flowers can represent a multitude of emotions and feelings: from love, passion and desire to purity, innocence or even death.
Found in masterpieces throughout history from Claude Monet and Gustav Klimt to Andy Warhol and Georgia O’Keefe, flowers have been appli
ed to express the surreal and the sublime, the joy and the madness, the beauty and the broken.

"Women's Work"
13 Artists Honoring Women's History Month

March 2020

This exhibit showcased art in different media from artists across the country. 2020 was the 100-year anniversary of the Suffrage Movement in America. To honor this occasion, most of the art chosen for this exhibit was focused on women’s rights, past and present. This exhibit celebrated women and portrayed gender equality as well as gender stereotypes, bringing awareness to oppression and objectification of women which still exists today.

Featured Artists: 

Alexandra Martin, Brittany James, Caitie Kohl, Carol Magnatta, Elaine Shor, Gail Kolflat, Jennifer Levine, Jessica Violetta, Jill Alexander, Kel Mur, Michelle Renee Bernard, Nanci France-Vaz, Natalie Straub
