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.

Christina Penrose's work is a result of experimenting with various transfer methods, collage, and paint application. This process stimulates underlying themes that are at times autobiographical, political, environmental, or mystical. Often inspired from the landscapes from her travels.

My work is primarily in oils and focuses on urban street scenes and still life settings made up of vintage housewares and toys.  I am interested in all things old as I believe they have the most interesting stories to tell.  Buildings and objects from the past both bring back memories for those who have previously interacted with them, and discovery to those seeing them for the first time.  I work in a contemporary realist style, looking to bring to attention the beautiful design elements that already exist in the subjects that I paint.
