OPEN CALL: "SENDING LOVE TO THE WORLD"

Unconditional love is the cure for human-made hatred and anxieties. In fact, all negativity is human-made and a result of the absence of love. Where unconditional love is, negativity does not exist. Love is superior compared to hatred and anxieties; as light is superior to darkness. Switch the light on and darkness disappears. Unconditional love is a choice. So, let’s just chose love over hatred. Let's send love to the world! Visualise this theme on a postcard size format: max 23,5 x 12,5cm. Submissions that include the positive and constructive forms of artistic expression and convey the spirit of love and beauty will be exhibited in Hong Kong in 2018! This installation attempts to generate a momentum that inspires people from all around the world to send their love to the world!

The judges for this art call welcome artists and photographers whose works provide viewers with unique interpretations of environmental settings—either viewed or imagined. These artists’ visions may transport the viewer to a lovely landscape, cityscape, seascape, or mindscape which invites them to enter their realm of beauty, uniqueness, serenity, etc. However, works reflecting human impact against the land, seas, etc., always major concerns, are encouraged as well. The earth’s landscapes are places of thought, meditation, reflection, tranquility, and at times sorrow. The landscape artists’ creations are defined and weighted only by the depth at which their presentations enrich our heart and conscience.

Drawn

The RWA’s biennial open submission drawing exhibition. Drawn is an open submission drawing exhibition. It aims to raise the profile of drawing, exploring it as both an autonomous discipline and an interdisciplinary tool. The exhibition pushes the parameters of drawing by exploring the parallel language of multiple disciplines. Submissions are invited from artists who either draw, or explore the concept of drawing in their work, including: illustrators, videographers, sculptors, printers, embroiderers, typographers, animators and architects.
