Art Guild’s call for artists


The Art Guild invites all artists, high school and older, to submit artworks for consideration for “JUSTICE” a Juried Competition and Exhibition.

Artwork can say what sometimes words cannot. During these difficult times, we have been inspired to look within ourselves, find ways to “speak out,” and express solidarity and compassion. Show us those emotions and what has empowered and inspired you to address social justice.

CRITERIA All styles from abstract to realism are welcome. All works must be original and have been created in the last five years. References used in the creation of the submitted work must be the artist’s own, or copyright-released for use in this work. The curating committee’s decision is final.


MEDIUMS Including but not limited to photography, acrylic, oil, watercolor, digital art, pastel, mixed media, collage, encaustic, etching/prints, or sculpture. (NO MASTER COPIES OR FAN ART)
