Artists at all experience levels are invited to submit two-dimensional work such as photography painting drawing, and mix-media. Artists selected as finalists will have their work exhibited (and available for purchase*) at Gallery19 for the month of June 2020. ** As competition judge, Teresa Magaña, artist and educator, will review all entries, select finalists, and announce the winner at an opening reception at Gallery19, on June 12th, 2020.

THEME: The Power of Identity

This year’s competition Gallery19 will delve into the ever changing definition of the artists self-portrait. While a portrait refers to any image that depicts a human figure, a self-portrait refers to a work that depicts the artist that produced it. Self-portraiture, whether produced in the medium of painting, photography, drawing, or mixed media is its own distinct genre of art, like that of the landscape or the still life. That is, the common features of all self-portraits unify the genre in content and means of expression. We will be looking for work by artists that explore the ideas of self-identity through the power of the self-portrait.
