UPWARD Gallery invites artists worldwide to submit artwork to our juried art exhibition and competition, Portrait.
Portrait in the art is an image of the personality, through which the artist’s conscious image of the time comes through. Portraiture is not only the depiction of the face and figure of a person, but it implies and expresses the whole world through the human personality, individuality embodied by art. And not only through the personality of the model, but also through the personality and individuality of the artist.
All artists 18 and older are encouraged to submit their work in any medium, style, and genre.
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.).
All accepted pieces will be displayed in our online gallery at upwardgallery.com.
The winners (1st place) are interviewed by the UPWARD Gallery editors for publication in the printed edition UPWARD’s Quarterly and on our site.
Each entrant of the competition receives a personal page (solo exhibition) in the UPWARD gallery. Selected works will be featured in curated galleries on our site. All entrants will receive digital certificates based on the results of the competition.
Entry fee: $12 for entry, $10 (2-4 entries), $9 (5 or more entries). $6 for entry – for artists under 22 years.
Deadline: April 20, 2023.
