Into the Light

The Alberta Society of Artists invites all artists in Alberta (must be 18 years of age or older) to submit to the exhibition, “Into the Light." A Provincial travelling exhibition, the theme follows the Alberta Society of Artist's prior exhibition, "Nocturn" that celebrated darkness and was analogous to the statement by Francis Bacon: “In order for the light to shine so brightly, the darkness must be present."

Overview

Deadline for submissions is October, 2020.

“My first memory is of light — the brightness of light — light all around.” ― Georgia O’Keeffe

“Look at light and admire its beauty. Close your eyes, and then look again: what you saw is no longer there; and what you will see later is not yet.” ― Leonardo Da Vinci

“Into the Light” can be interpreted in many ways, including the personal or the universal. The artist’s statement will be crucial to the understanding of the artwork’s intent in this exhibition call. A catalogue will be produced.
A size limitation of 36″ in any direction.

Two-dimensional works only.

There are no Submission Fees.
