CALL FOR ARTISTS
2017 Winter/Spring Art Show
The Paul Nigra Center for Creative Arts
Show Dates: February 2, 2017 - April 19, 2017
Submission Deadline: January 9, 2017
The Paul Nigra Center for Creative Arts is seeking submissions for its latest juried show. The 2017 Winter/Spring Show at the Paul Nigra Center for Creative Arts will showcase art that explores the theme of "Elements." The elements of art and design are just as crucial to the human experience as the elements in science and nature. While the elements in science and nature form the building blocks of our world, making life possible, the elements of art and design govern how we perceive and interact with it, making life beautiful. For this exhibition, we invite artists of all kinds to submit pieces that explore what "Elements" means to them. The interpretations of the theme are as limitless as the things we see and experience every day.
All works must be submitted via the website www.OnlineJuriedShows.com
Through the generous donations of supports, the Paul Nigra Center for Creative Arts is able to offer three prizes to outstanding submissions. The grand prize is $100 and a membership to the Paul Nigra Center for Creative Arts, while second prize is $50 and a membership and third prize is $35 and a membership.
