 The time of year that Keats called the 'Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness', autumn is a season famous for its harvest times, turning leaves, cooling temperatures and darkening nights.

Thinking about autumn can bring about some pleasant thoughts. And while it is common to think about cozy scarves and delicious pies, the symbolic meanings of autumn can be more profound.  Ancient cultures, science, and astrology have associated many aspects of this beautiful season to human life. These symbolic associations are powerful reminders that Mother Nature has an incredible influence on our lives.

The Contemporary is seeking works that address the artist’s perspective and attempts explore the colors and the lighting of autumn. Combining these works for this show, we will convey an alternative and exciting approach to a special time of year where shadows grow long, the air is cool and crisp, and the surrounding foliage is resplendent.

Native American artists are strongly encouraged to participate and will be given special consideration.

Please read all the rules and terms before applying. Submit images and details (as needed) for no more than 4 (four) works.
