Theme and Selection: “FACES OF HUMANITY 2018” â€“ For this group exhibition the curators will be selecting artwork or photography that communicates the diversity of humanity by capturing the emotion, beauty, love, hope, and wisdom as seen in the faces of people from different cultures. Sensing a universal personage reflected in the facial expressions of people throughout the world offers us all an avenue leading to an understanding of, connection to, and perhaps even a convergence with other cultures. What may at first appear somewhat alien often will evolve into a realization and deep appreciation of the fact that we are all part of the family of man. Seeing our own humanity in the faces of other beings encourages understanding and acceptance of others’ values and priorities.
Eligibility: This competition is open to all artists/photographers 18 years of age or older. Submissions for consideration can be expressed in any of the following aspects: representational, expressionism, surrealism, or abstraction.
