Call for ART: 8th Annual Abstract Catalyst (Virtual)


Verum Ultimum Art Gallery invites artists to explore the theme, ABSTRACT CATALYST for its 8th year and enter work that is any interpretation of the call. Please note this exhibition will be ONLINE ONLY.


Abstract Catalyst takes on a distinct edge that seems to catapult it in a divergent direction (and unlike the focus of Verum's other Abstract show, Abstract Sanctuary). As always, the intention of the theme is never to drive the work, rather have it serve as an impetus to discover unique visions and showcase them. All mediums are welcome. What will be revealed this year? Verum Ultimum Gallery invites artists to showcase their talent within this expressive genre and propel a new vision in this 8th year of Abstract Catalyst Exhibition.


This is a virtual exhibition and all works will be displayed on the gallery website, within a virtual viewing gallery setting, and promoted through blogposts and social media channels.


Deadline is August 16th, 2021
