Call for ART: 7th Annual Living Mark Exhibition


Verum Ultimum Gallery is thrilled to still be accepting applications for this exhibition opportunity. The schedule of a June exhibition has not been altered. If the current health crisis dictates that we move the exhibition to a summer month or further, that is what will be done, but be assured that the exhibition will not be cancelled (the only potential is that the month may be adjusted). Verum Ultimum is thrilled to invite artists to explore, "The Living Mark" for the seventh year in a row and enter work that is any interpretation of the call. The intention of the call is not to drive the work, but to spark an impetus, and discover unique visions to showcase.  ALL MEDIUMS are welcome. Mark making is an integral part of the creative process and the evidence of the artist’ hand is always exciting to see.  The most successful works seem to be enlivened by these marks (whether abstract or representational).   This call emphasizes the process with a focus on the individual style of the art maker (whether impassioned, studied, or subdued).  What kind of marks and/or mediums do you use to lead to great results?  Or perhaps you see the theme as a chance to express that art is a metaphor for (or reflection of) life itself and our relationship to this driving force? What is your personal interpretation of this metaphoric or symbolic vehicle, “The Living Mark”?

Deadline is March 31, 2020

Exhibition will run for the month of June 2020.

Entries are accepted through Cafe:
