  • “Make Your Mark” Summer National Juried Exhibition

    Artists use marks to create form, line, pattern and texture. Mark-making can be loose and spontaneous or intentionally controlled and structured. Marks can be descriptive, expressive, conceptual, photographic or symbolic, and appear
    across all genres of artwork from abstract to representational. A mark can be made with a splash or drip of paint, or a thread through space. From Vincent Van Gogh to Cy Twombly, mark-making has been an integral part of the artistic
    process yet it can be elusive to define. We’re interested in seeing how you make marks to create your artwork. 2D or 3D artwork will be accepted in any medium.
