DESCRIPTION:

Travel leads us to have uncommon experiences; as we step out of our comfort zones, we often see the world with fresh eyes and a sense of wonder. We invite artists to submit work for our next exhibit “JOURNEYS.” Submitted work should relate to some aspect of travel, adventures, or journeys taken – real or imagined. Witness Gauguin’s adventures in French Polynesia, or Van Gogh’s travels to the south of France. 

We hope to see artistic expressions relating to the artists’ own personal explorations of the world, from far to near… including abstract, experimental or representational works.

Contemporary, expressionistic, abstract, exploratory, and/or experimental entries encouraged.
O’Hanlon Center for the Arts emphasizes the creative process and the continued pursuit of meaning and authenticity through observation, exploration, and experimentation.

MEDIA: All Media, including 3D/Sculptural works.

  • Open to all artists age 16 and over.
  • Submission limit: 3 works per artist. 
  • Works previously displayed in the O’Hanlon Gallery are not eligible.

ART PREPARATION

  • All work must be ready for display. Paint, glue, etc. must be dry!
  • Wall hung pieces must be securely wired. 
  • Label all work with Artist’s name & Contact information.
  • Bring resume and/or artist statement, if desired. (2 pages max.)
