We’re past the midpoint of our “gallery year” — with no lack of subjects. In fact, we’ve added wildfires to the list of contemporary themes our artists and photographers are tacklng.
As has been the case since March, all submissions are welcome — in any medium. The only rule: It should be inspired by, relevant to, or somehow, in some way, connected to our current world. Student art of all ages is especially welcome.
Coronavirus, social justice, politics, or just the beauty around us — have at it! Email firstname.lastname@example.org, to share your work with the world.
