Call for Entries: Contemporary Visions of Greece's Golden Age (Deadline March 17th)
ELIGIBILITY: This is a national call for artists, open to all, at any stage in their professional careers. Artists may submit up to 3 images for consideration.
THEME: Art work accepted will be inspired by artistic ideals and achievements of the classical (480-323 BC) and Hellenistic (323-146 BC) periods in Greek history as an imaginative springboard for a contemporary twist on Greek sculpture, low and high relief, painting, pottery, frescoes, mosaics, and architecture. Consider the definition of beauty in human terms, with an emphasis on harmony, balance, order and moderation, vitality of life, clarity, and depictions of everyday life as well as mythology.
