DESCRIPTION

Order/Disorder

Online Exhibition Only 

We are asking artists to explore order and disorder through their artwork. Order and disorder are an integral part of the natural world. There are many ways to interpret the meaning of order and disorder in art. The laws of the physical world tell us that orderly states move toward randomness, disorder, and dissolution. Humans use order to understand the environment around them. Art is called orderly when an observer sees the overall structure, can see what is alike and what is different and understands the relationships between the parts and the whole.  Disorder involves pushing the possibilities of order to the extreme until the shape will simply succumb to disintegration. Order and disorder are complementary, interconnected, and mutually dependent on each other. Without the potential of disorder, nothing in the world would ever change.

The online exhibition will run from November 1- 30, 2022. 

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: September 28, 2022.

ELIGIBILITY
All artists 18 years and older are eligible to enter. The call is open to national artists. Work must be 2-D original art, not copied from published photos or the work of other artists.
