Luminosity: Reflections on Light
What The emphasis on luminosity may be reflected by use of various mediums, or it may be an intrinsic part of the subject matter. Light can focus the viewer’s eye on rich shadows, bathe an entire scene, emphasize contrast, or capture an incandescent darkness. Radiance or luminosity can reflect mood or atmosphere, whether brilliant or illuminating ethereal subtleties. Light can also be a surface effect; some artists varnish paintings to give them a gloss. The contrasts of Light and Dark are often infused with symbolic meaning, inviting the viewer to explore their own projections as they experience the artwork.

Flora & Fauna
What What plants or animals inhabit your Earthly Paradise? Are they life forms native to where you live or exotic flora and fauna from far reaches of the planet? Would you bring back extinct species, import life forms from other galaxies, or create phantasmagorical plants and animals from your imagination? Where do humans fit into your paradise? We welcome artists whose concerns are ecology-based as well as those whose subject matter is traditionally flora, fauna or landscapes. You are invited to display your technical prowess in realism, abstraction or fantasy. We are seeking wide-ranging interpretations that will transform our gallery into a virtual Shangri-La.
