CALL FOR SUBMISSION: “Nocturne” National Juried Exhibition DEADLINE: September 9th, 2019

DESCRIPTION: The word “Nocturne” conveys a dreamy, pensive composition or works of art dealing with the coming of darkness. We are seeking works that are evocative of the night, subjects as they appear in a veil of light, twilight or the absence of direct light. This theme lends itself to works that are tonal in nature, so works using soft, diffused light, muted tones and hazy outlined objects are welcome. We also invite artists to explore subjects associated with the night such as nocturnal animals and birds, people working the night shift, landscapes and cityscapes at night, and nocturnal fantasy creatures such witches, vampires and ghosts. And finally, artists whose favorite color is black are invited to submit works in that tone.

CATEGORIES ACCEPTED: Sculpture, painting, drawing, photo, printmaking, ceramics, assemblage, collage, mixed media, fiber art, glass art, artist book

VENUE: Arc Gallery, 1246 Folsom St, San Francisco 94103

JUROR: Jennifer Perlmutter, Jennifer Perlmutter Gallery, LaFayette, CA
Jennifer Perlmutter Gallery opened to engage more with the public, to empower other artists, and to elevate the conversation about art in this region. Great art speaks truths we can all understand, and shares beauty that enriches our lives. It’s transformative and healing. The creative process in the studio is carried into the gallery in this unique venue. Ultimately, this gallery is a place of connection and opportunity. My mission is to share compelling fine art that touches and inspires you.
