Amethyst Remembrance (Online Art Exhibition) – Call For Artists

[Side Arts Certified Sponsored Listing] Southern Tier Center for Emerging Artists (STCEA) announces a call for artists for an online art exhibition, Amethyst Remembrance: A Purple Show. Purple is a color that has long been associated with royalty, luxury, and creativity. Emily Dickinson was a fan of the “amethyst remembrance” and so is Southern Tier Center.

The color purple is a highly distinctive and adaptable shade that can evoke a sense of nostalgia and elegance and bring a sense of complexity and opulence to any work of art. Show how purple inspires you in this color-themed show. All subjects, styles, and mediums are welcome.

Deadline: 22 Sept 2019

Secondary colors: orange, green, and purple are as impactful and can be the foundation for equally compelling imagery. NYC4PA is looking for images in which one of these colors stands out as a critical element. It can be black and white with a single point of color; a green, orange, or purple monochrome; or any image where a secondary color stands out as a focal point. The possibilities in nature are endless with green leaves and lawns, orange bursts of autumn color and purple flowers, and magical purple hazes that can set off late afternoon scenes. Clothing, pumpkins, traffic lights, and automobiles, the list goes on and on.

There is a grand prize, three first prizes, three second prizes, three third prizes, 15 juror’s selections, and 20 honorable mentions.  Each of the first 25 winners have an opportunity to exhibit in a New York City gallery, the Jadite Gallery in Hell’s Kitchen.
