2004 International Juried Online Symbolist Art Show
"The Artist As Shaman"
(March 1, 2004 Entry Deadline)
Artists are invited to enter the 2004 International Juried Online Symbolist Art Show, "The Artist As Shaman". Like Shamans, artists have the ability to explore alternative realms. Artists can retrieve healing energy, knowledge, larger truths and ancestral wisdom, to give form to the forces which shape our world. "The Artist As Shaman" invites artists to interpret and share their connection to nature, mystical energies, dreams and visions. The power of the artwork to communicate, heal and shift awareness is the foundation of this year's show.
The 2003 event, "The Mythic Quest", attracted almost 400 entries, with $2,000 in cash prizes awarded. It can be viewed at http://www.dracoblu.com/symbolistshow.html.
The 2002 show, "The Dreamer and the Dreamed" remains archived at http://www.dracoblu.com/symbolistshow02.html
The competition is open to artists and art students. Original two- and three-dimensional art is acceptable including, but not limited to: painting, drawing, printmaking, etching, collage, fibre, digital art, sculpture and photography. Jury TBA.
The entry fee is 15.00 dollars/euro/sterling for artists or 5.00 dollars/euro/sterling for art students. Canadian, US, Euro or UK Sterling are accepted currencies. Credit card payments can be made online via PayPal.
