Artist Call for Entries: "Art with a Story" Artwork Network Colorado

Entries due: October 24th, 2010

(from the press release)

(Denver) We often encounter artwork that makes us stop and wonder — what does this mean? What was the artist thinking, what were they feeling? With some art it’s obvious what the motivations were, but with others, the viewer is only left to guess. With Artwork Network’s 2010 Online Juried Show, “Art with a Story”, we want artists to let us in on the secret.

Whether in writing or verbally via a short video, artists can give the public some insight into the layers of the visual mystery they’ve created. We don’t care what it’s about: personal insight, the neighbor’s dog, the future of the world; all stories and all artistic mediums will be accepted. The show will be presented solely online, and voted on by both a selected jury and the public. Each piece will be judged by the digital representation provided. Submissions are now being accepted at

Important dates:
  • Entries due: October 24th, 2010
