Download in PDF Format

Around the world for the past few months, people have been isolating to protect each other. Yet even before the pandemic, we have all felt isolated at one time or another. Feeling separate from others is a part of the human experience. Isolation can reflect a physical, emotional or intellectual separation. Isolation can be voluntary or forced upon us. It can be a healing respite and teach us and give us space to grow. Or, it can be a miserable torment. Many of our life choices are intended to meet our need to feel connected. Share your literal, abstract or in-between interpretation of ISOLATION.






Entries may include 2- and 3-dimensional media, such as paintings, drawings, photography, mixed media, installations, ceramics, jewelry, fabric, sculpture, photos of performance art, fiction, poetry, short stories and other written explorations (up to 900 words). Submissions must be the original work of the applicant(s). Apply using the online form.


Publication in a brilliant art magazine and online 2-year exhibition. Four top applicants will receive a feature section with a profile written about them. Up to 40 applicants will be selected for the full exhibition, all to be showcased in the magazine and the juried online exhibition.
