International Juried Art Competition
April - May 2023
ART SHOW INTERNATIONAL GALLERY announces their 7th OPEN International Juried Art Competition. All visual artists from around the world are invited to submit their best artworks on the theme for inclusion in the exhibition. All types of art styles may be submitted, including both 2D and 3D works, painting, sculpture, digital, printmaking, fiber, photography, graphic, mixed media, as well as experimental and installation works.
The theme of this international juried art competition is OPEN. In other words, any and all subjects are welcome under this category, and so any of our dozen other current themes also qualifies under this, so please feel free to make any duplicate submissions from those themes here if you'd like to maximize your chance of wining awards. Artists are free to apply their own interpretation. Natural and artificial subject matters, as well as representational and abstract concepts, in any media, will be considered. Please note that you must be 18 years of age in order to participate in any of our events. See below for more details on submission guidelines.
