Express your artistic world of human emotions and feelings

Gallerium is pleased to invite you to apply for Emotions 2023, the third annual exhibition and publication. 

Emotions - 2023 encourages artists to provide artworks that display human feelings and emotions. The selected artworks will be published in The Book of Arts publication and showcased in an international online exhibition by Gallerium.

Eckman listed the basic six types of human emotions as:

Happiness, Sadness, Fear, Disgust, Anger, Surprise.

These emotions are just a glimpse of the various types of emotions that we are capable of experiencing. In time, the research and theories have explored more types of emotions and identified:

Love, Affection, Longing, Amusement, Contempt, Contentment, Embarrassment, Guilt, Shame, Fear, Excitement, Pride, Satisfaction, Relief, caring, compassion, tenderness, etc.

And the list expanded more, as a recent study by the Greater Good Science Center suggested that there are at least 27 distinct emotions, all of which are highly interconnected.

Emotions are the keystone to experiencing art, and all abstract and figurative art that explores the vast spectrum of human emotions are encouraged.

This dual opportunity is open to all artists; working in any abstract or representational art medium worldwide. 

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