CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS  Photographers & Digital Artists   ABSTRACTIONS 2014

Ed Wedman, Co-Founder of Exhibitions Without Walls asked me to share this Call to Artists this last day before the deadline.

Abstractions in the visual arts is about expressing general ideas or qualities of an actual person, object, or pure digital art.  It is about expressing ideas and emotions by using elements such as colors and lines without attempting to recreate the original image.  The basis for abstractions is to alter the reality of the subject.  This competition invites photographers and digital artists to use their own interpretations of these ideas, using any type of subject matter and using any style of photography or digital art . . . . learn more
