Call for Art – Coming of Age

Call for Art – Coming of Age

This Deadline Expired: Monday, July 12, 2021

Artists aged 40 years and over are invited to submit to the next virtual exhibition at The Curator’s Salon.

The transition from childhood to adulthood is what we commonly think of when we hear the phrase ‘coming of age.’ But what about the sense of freedom and exploration those of us often feel in our later years? A second ‘coming of age’ presents itself where we embrace change and learn to re-fuel our creative energy.

Whether you find yourself picking up art again after a period of time away, or it’s been a lifelong practice, embodying a transitional time in life gives us the confidence to create and share the art that’s always been within.

Deadline to submit – 12 July 2021

Selected Entries will be notified week of 26 July.

Exhibition to take place in August – this is a virtual exhibition

The exhibition is open to artists worldwide.

Only suitable for artists working in 2D.

As my concern for our planet grows daily, I make art to express this, in the beautiful, mysterious language of abstraction. For the last 6 years I have been painting about our climate crisis in a series on rising waters, rain, birds, coral, forests and lost ice. I show both the beauty and desecration of our environment. I convey feeling through the use of color and movement.

Mindy Flexer makes magical realist, figurative, oil paintings. She uses observation and invention to explore identity and family relationships, and the way personal history resides within the larger arc of time. Her current work is about our extraordinary historical moment, when climate crisis threatens all life on earth, and climate justice offers the possibility of global transformation to a just and equitable world. Her visual language of a seamless world of people, animals, and place, is the language of the interconnection of all life on earth. Flexer’s paintings speak about climate in a language personal enough for people to hear it. Her goal is to inspire people to action. She hopes to connect people to themselves and each other, so each person can find their place in the mass movement necessary to create a sustainable future. In this way, she sees her paintings aspart of the great web of healing she deeply believes can save our planet.
