Call for ART MUGSHOTS: Celebrating Ceramics & ALL MEDIUMS with a focus on the FACE

Verum Ultimum Art Gallery in Portland, Oregon invites artists to explore the theme:


An Off the Wall Exhibition celebrating Ceramics and the Portrait

...and enter work that is any interpretation of the call. We don't seek to drive the work, we only hope to discover your unique vision and showcase it. This exhibit has a focus on ceramic work and the portrait, but all 2D and 3D mediums are welcome and works can be abstract, symbolic, realistic, representational, minimalist, or contemporary. Whether the term, MUGSHOT means (strictly) the face, or it represents the idea of an actual vessel or mug, or you see it as the physicality of the medium, or the object you employ…we want to discover how this provocative theme describes your vision.

“Every portrait that is painted with feeling is a portrait of the artist, not of the sitter. The sitter is merely the accident, the occasion. It is not he who is revealed by the painter; it is rather the painter who, on the colored canvas, reveals himself.” ― Oscar Wilde

The medium is the message,”

philosopher, Marshall McLuhan
