"Introspect"
April 13, 2013 - May 5, 2013

Oh Wanderer, you have visited every nook and corner of the world which is external to you.
If you have not, then you crave and dream to do so...
But have you ever taken time and visited the world within instead?
If yes, we would like to know what you found....
If no, we would still like to know what you think you would find, if you did go inside...

Submit: An art piece depicting your inner world. Art could be in any medium, painting, photography, ceramics, video, reused material,
Audio.... Let your imagination go wild...

Submit a Writing Piece: Tell us in words the story behind the piece and your journey.

Juror: Joanna Pinsky, Artist & Co-founder, Artistic Director and teacher for Art Encounter, a tax-exempt educational organization which brings visual arts understanding to people of all ages. Pinsky is widely exhibited nationally and internationally, and is included in many important private and public collections.
