"Abstract" International Call - Art & Literature Journal

ArtAscent seeks submissions. Selected artists receive publication in a brilliant art magazine, 2 year online exhibition, and 4 top applicants receive a feature section with a profile written about them. Abstractions are all around us. Ideas can be abstract; existing as an idea, feeling or quality but not having a tangible existence. Some conversations can be abstract, vague and theoretical and not based on particular examples or facts. And of course, there is abstract art which evokes feelings without trying to realistically represent the appearance of people or things. Abstract art, like poetry, offers a fragment of a mysteriously familiar narrative without directly revealing it in a realistic way. Entries may include 2- and 3-dimensional media, such as paintings, drawings, photography, mixed media, installations, ceramics, jewelry, fabric, sculpture, photos of performance art, fiction, poetry, short stories and other written explorations (up to 900 words). Submissions must be the original work of the applicant(s). $15+ entry fee. Deadline: April 30, 2019. More info.
