Call for Submissions: ALL ABOUT LOVE

ALL ABOUT LOVE

Love of all passions is the strongest, for it attacks simultaneously the head, the heart, and the senses.  Lao Tzu

La Vie Galerie LLC announces a Call for Entries for a new exhibit, ALL ABOUT LOVE, scheduled to open on February 9, 2020 and run through March 15, 2020.  

Love does not have a specific meaning. It is an ambiguous notion since its definition is open to more than one interpretation. Love encompasses a range of strong and positive emotions. It is a relational word. You can love objects that do not love you back—the sky or a painting. 

The diversity of meanings combined with the complexity of the feelings involved makes love unusually difficult to define. What is your visual interpretation of ALL ABOUT LOVE?

All work accepted for this exhibit must convey your interpretation of “love.” You may submit all 2D & 3D art including illustrations, painting (all media), photography, graphic art, computer generated art, sculpture, ceramics, jewelry, etc.
