Deadline: June 30, 2017 – “Abstract” International Call For Artists and Writers by ArtAscent

| 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 which 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, fiction, poetry, short stories and other written explorations (up to 900 words).

| Highlights:
Be profiled, get published, and shine on! Up to 40 applicants will be selected. Plus, if you are chosen as one of the top 4 applicants, you will also be highlighted in a feature section with a profile written about you and your work.

JUROR | MARGARET STRICKLAND
Margaret Strickland, Charlotte based photographer, has been making portraits of family, friends, and strangers for over a decade. Born and raised in Valdosta, Georgia, Margaret was influenced by cultural norms of the Deep South — a foundation that would later surface as an undercurrent in her work. Margaret’s work explores concepts of gender identity and performance, expectations of the self and of society, and the confluence of these ideas in the constructed poses of intimate portraits. Her works have been shown nationally at galleries and institutions, including the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington D.C., and The Mint Museum Uptown, Charlotte.
