Feelings and Emotions | Juried exhibition for curators


UPWARD Gallery invites curators worldwide to submit artwork to our juried art exhibition, Feelings and Emotions.

One of the most important functions of art is that it helps a person to clarify their own feelings and emotions. It provides a mirror that reflects the images of the feelings we experience, which allows us not only to evaluate ourselves and see our emotional world from the outside, but also to tell something to another about his world. Looking into this mirror, the viewer can identify himself with the character or the author, penetrate the world of a work of art, understand the feelings and perceive the emotions contained in it.

Acceptable mediums include all traditional art media (e.g., oil, watercolor, acrylic, pastel, mixed media, gouache, egg tempera, pen and ink; drawing media such as graphite, charcoal, colored pencils, scratch board, markers, metal point), digital painting, arts and crafts (beadwork, pottery, embroidery, floristry, batik, stained glass, two-dimensional collage and fabric art as well, etc.).
No profanity or political artwork.

Entries must be submitted by curators of entrants. Entrants must be at least 18 years of age or older. Curators may not submit their own artworks.

All accepted pieces will be displayed in our online gallery at upwardgallery.com.
The winners (1st place) — the artist and his curator will be interviewed by the UPWARD Gallery editors for publication in the quarterly printed edition UPWARD’s Quarterly and on the site in the section Interviews.
All entrants will receive digital certificates based on the results of the exhibition.

The curator can submit three artworks free of charge to participate in the curated exhibition.

This exhibition is for curators only, not for individual artists.
