“Abstract” International Call

ArtAscent Art & Literature Journal seeks entries for an online art exhibition, August 1, 2020, to August 1, 2022. Theme: Abstractions are all around us. Ideas can be abstract; existing as an idea, feeling, or quality but not having a tangible existence. Some conversations can be abstract, vague, and theoretical and not based on particular examples or facts. And of course, there is abstract art that evokes feelings without trying to realistically represent the appearance of people or things. Abstract art, like poetry, offers a fragment of a mysteriously familiar narrative without directly revealing it in a realistic way. Reveal your most Abstract thoughts. Entries may include 2- and 3-dimensional media, such as paintings, drawings, photography, mixed media, installations, ceramics, jewelry, fabric, sculpture, photos of performance art, fiction, poetry, short stories and other written explorations (up to 900 words).
