THE YEAR THE EARTH STOOD STILL —
MINI MASTERPIECES 2021
CALL FOR WORK!
OPENING Friday, January 15th, 2021 | 6:00pm
Revolution Gallery’s group exhibit “MINI MASTERPIECES” was such a success in both January 2019 and January 2020, that we look forward to the 3rd Annual Mini Masterpieces this January 2021.
This is our first year with a theme: THE YEAR THE EARTH STOOD STILL. As artists, creating our way through 2020 helps us navigate this year of loss, division, challenge, isolation, lockdown, and turbulence. Making art kept us connected with each other; with the start of this upcoming year, we head into 2021 with the hope to continue connecting. What visually reflects what you experienced so far? How can you distill these experiences into artwork?
For 2021‘s MINI MASTERPIECES we invite artists to submit to this group exhibit of all 5″ x 5″ works. The theme is a reflection and visual commentary on the artist’s observation / reaction / vision of what they have experienced in 2020. A gentle reminder – Revolution Gallery exhibits pop surrealism and focuses on figurative work. Submissions should be within this criteria.
Mini Masterpieces Show will open on January 15th, and the exhibit will run through February 15th, 2021.
Artists are required to make their own 5″ x 5″ square hard board panel 1/8″ inch thick. Here is an ONLINE SOURCE for square hard board panels
