The gallery’s competition for March 2015 was the 5th Annual “CityScapes” Art Competition. 2D and 3D artists (including photography) from around the world, were called upon to make online submissions for possible inclusion in to the Gallery’s April 2015 online group art exhibition.
Artists were asked for their interpretation of the theme “CityScapes” by submitting their best representational and non-representational art which depicts the theme “CityScapes”. The CityScapes art theme includes any subjects such as cities, towns, urban scenes and any related metropolitan subjects
The Guest Judge for this competition was artist marketing expert Carolyn Edlund, from www.artsyshark.com. Below are her thoughts on this competition and her rationale for selecting the art for each media category.
“In judging this exhibition, I considered the different sights and feelings that cities present. Up close, they can be bustling and chaotic, filled with energy flowing in a million directions. From afar, a city can appear as a serene, glowing landscape. Cities are nothing without people, and their everyday tasks and activities give a city life and character. I found in these submissions all of these impressions of city life, and carefully chose those pieces of art that captured fascinating parts of the urban experience, combined with striking visual impact.
The art competition and the submission process for the artists began in February 2015 and concluded on March 27, 2015. The gallery received 676 entries from 17 different countries from around the world, including Australia, Austria, Canada, Ecuador, France, Germany, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Morocco, Netherlands, New Zealand, Russia, Singapore, Taiwan, Ukraine and the United Kingdom. In addition, the gallery received entries from 31 different states.
