We invite artists to submit works for our  Nov 15 - Dec 31, 2021 O’Hanlon Center  ONLINE Gallery exhibit So Real - Surreal.

It appears we are living in surrealistic times. The Surrealist Manifesto of André Breton was published almost 100 years ago, and the Dadaist were turning the world upside down to see how it looked.  Now it is time to express a 2.0 version that speaks to our world of post fact, post rational, multiple “realities.”  What do your dreams, hallucinations, fanciful imaginings, and unconscious compel you to create? Show us the world through your uniquely “distorted” and “bizarre” lens. 

This show is Juried by Michael Yochum of ARC Fine Arts in San Francisco, CA.

Contemporary, expressionistic, abstract, exploratory, and/or experimental entries encouraged. 

There will be a zoomed Roundtable art discussion to celebrate the show on Nov 16 at 4 pm Pacific time open to all.

Each artist may submit up to 3 individual pieces of artwork for consideration into this juried show. Diptychs and Triptychs are considered 1 piece of work. Diptychs and Triptychs must be submitted as one image.  Unfortunately we are not able to accept film or video at this time.
