Visionary Art Collective is currently inviting artists to submit their work for an online exhibit, titled, “Contemporary Portraiture: Redefining the Figure.” The exhibit is centered around the human form. Portraiture has traditionally been utilized as a medium to capture and replicate the likeness or expression of a person, yet this age old art form has evolved tremendously since its origins – from DaVinci’s anatomical drawings to visually striking portraits by contemporary painter Amy Sherald. The online exhibit will be showcasing a wide range of work, including representational and abstract interpretations, as well as work by artists who seek to redefine or challenge the genre of portraiture.
Guest curator is Erika b Hess, painter, curator, and host of the ‘I Like Your Work’podcast. Erika has exhibited across the United States and gained national recognition for her work as a painter and curator. Artists who work in diverse mediums and styles are encouraged to apply. Painting, drawing, printmaking, mixed-media, collage, sculpture, photography are the accepted mediums for submission. The deadline for entry is October 10, 2020 and the online exhibit will be held on their website. Submit your work here.
