NOTIFICATION (by email) of accepted work May 28, 2022


Opening early June and running through July 2022

The competition is open to all 2D and 3D artists, national and international, working in all forms of painting, drawing, photography, graphics, digital, and sculpture are eligible. Entrants must be 18 years of age or older to apply. This is a virtual exhibition and all works will be displayed on the gallery website and promoted through social media channels.

Selected artists will be featured in a virtual group exhibition online on the Verum Ultimum Art Gallery website; additionally works will be displayed in a gallery setting (with works appearing in scale) in Verum's virtual gallery platform. Artists will also be featured through online blogposts. Social media attention and promotion will remain on this exhibition for a minimum of 6 weeks.


Verum Ultimum Art Gallery invites artists to explore the theme, STRATA and enter work that is any interpretation of the call. Please note this exhibition will be ONLINE ONLY.

Strata refers to layers. The layers can be inferred as literal (in the material usage or striated apperance) or symbolic (as in layers of meaning and complexity). How is layering expressed through your work? Does your work reflect the layered aspects of our pandemic impacted world? Does your work represent the complexity of current world traumas & socioeconomic striations? Or perhaps layering is an aspect of your process to achieve expression & beauty? As with all Verum's calls for art, the curator never seeks to drive the work, the hope is to unveil unique visions. All mediums and modes of expression are welcome. The term Strata may be interpreted in many ways, not necessarily meant to be a literal elucidation. Verum Ultimum Gallery tasks artists to define “STRATA” for this first edition of this exhibition.
