At its best art has the power to heal, inspire, provoke, challenge and offer hope. It can transform our physiological state and perception. It also has the power to awaken us to become more conscious about important issues affecting individuals, society and the planet.
Since 2000 I have been curating exhibitions on the theme of The Healing Power of ART on the Manhattan Arts International website. Our online exhibitions always attract thousands of viewers from around the world, so this year’s theme “Inspiring The Positive” is more important than ever.
We’re seeking art that either has a positive healing impact on viewers and/or art that raises awareness about our need for positive change.
All 2-D and 3-D media including drawings, paintings, printmaking, photography, digital art, sculpture, works on paper, installations, wood, glass, ceramics, fiber art and mixed media. No video/film.
I will select 50 artists for the exhibition. Joining me on the panel of jurors for “The Healing Power of ART” are: Lisa Cooper, owner of Elisa Contemporary Art and corporate art consultant; Barbara Markoff, owner of Artrageous! Gallery and corporate and healthcare art consultant; and John R. Math, photographer and founder of Light Space Time online gallery. They will each select an artist to receive a Special Recognition Award.
A work of art by a minimum of 50 selected artists will be featured for two months on the Manhattan Arts International website at www.manhattanarts.com. Cash awards, Featured Artist Awards, and Special Recognition Awards will be given.
I hope you will consider submitting your art for this important online exhibition. Entries are being accepted on the website. Learn more about The Healing Power of ART 2017.
