Chandler Gallery Annual Open Call Art Show

This is Chandler Gallery’s Annual Open Call Area Artist Show. Our theme “NATURE’S PALETTE” is open to your artistic interpretation. We are aiming to exhibit a diverse collection of colorful 2-D and 3-D art in all media: drawing, painting, printing, illustration, photography, digital art, sculpture, video, mixed media, and decorative art (textiles, glass, wood, metal, ceramics, paper, or other techniques).

As nature’s inspiring, dynamic, calming, or stormy colors, forms and events are deeply connected with human life and culture, the theme “NATURE’S PALETTE” can be interpreted representatively or symbolically. How do you see nature’s wonders and colors? How does the natural world influence your artistic expressions either directly or indirectly? What thoughts, moods, dreams, and visions come  from your connections with the natural world and the elements?
