ABOUT

The subject of this dual artist call is EXTINCTION: Save the Planet

You are invited to act as an ambassador of our planet Earth, and be the voice of all endangered species by showcasing your art in another all-medium, dual exhibition and publication opportunity, organized by Gallerium.

According to an article in CNN, the sixth mass extinction is accelerating. It is not some worrisome thought for the future; it is here, it is happening now, and it is entirely our fault, we as humans.

Furthermore, recently published UN climate report (Monday, April 04, 2022) warns humanity that the world is on a fast track to an obvious disaster, and scientists argue that it is "Now or Never" to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees.

Artists have always been the conscious mind and heart of society, and now, more than ever, the world needs their creative support to raise awareness about environmental issues and concerns, and take another vital step towards saving the earth through their prominent art.

Now for the second year of EXTINCTION: Save the Planet artist call, we are looking for your artistic interpretations in the forms of artworks that visualize the below subjects:

a. Global warming concerns such as meltdown and ice mass loss in Greenland, Antarctica, the Arctic, and glaciers worldwide

b. Animals, plants, and fungus on the IUCN Red List of threatened species

c. Animals (birds, sea life, insects, wildlife, pets) and plants sufferings due to climate changes

d. Air, light, noise, plastic, chemical, thermal, and water pollution, along with litter, soil, and radioactive contamination, that hurt nature and species

e. Vanishing forests, rainforests, and wildfire spread because of environmental conditions

f. Natural disasters such as tornadoes, storms, floods, earthquakes, wildfires, droughts, and their effects on everyone's habitat

g. Preventing or slowing down the extinction that threatens the ecosystem and has severe consequences for all species survival

h. Any similar subject that can be categorized as an extinction-related matter

All artistic expressions and artworks created in any medium, abstract or representational, are welcome.

The selected artworks will be published in The Book of Art: Extinction 2022 publication and showcased in Extinction: Save the Planet international online group exhibition by Gallerium.

Submission is free, and a small selection fee applies to selected artists only.
