SUBMISSIONS

The idea of The Secret Garden creates a realm of innocence and enchantment. Another worldly dimension to a place intertwined with wonder and growth.

 

The emotional attachment of the artist to the garden, through themes such as seclusion, spirituality and sexuality. It explores not only innocent pleasures but also the more painful thoughts and memories that gardens can evoke.

 

It also focuses on the continuing role of the garden as a metaphor for femininity. This has developed both through the classical tradition and the Christian identification of the enclosed garden, or ‘hortus conclusus’, with the Blessed Virgin.

 

There are many secret places within the garden that are yet to be explored, arched gateways closed or ajar to another mystery location within this mystical place.  Different plants, flowers and foliage undisturbed; the only disarray by the insects, small animals, bad weather or a small number of beings occupying the space momentarily.

 

Pepney Gallery is looking for artist's artworks to illustrate ideas around the above and more in regards to 'The Secret Garden'.

Submissions closed 

Pepney Gallery is looking for artist’s to submit artwork in any medium based closely to the theme -

WINTER LIGHT for our Winter Virtual Exhibition Show; 

Winter Light is based around the crisp atmosphere that take place during the winter months. The light aspect of the title, indicates a level of hope in the colder weather. Instinctively, light in the winter months is something that we search for to create a level of warmth, lifted spirits, a sense of cosy being; as the reduced level of sunlight in winter may disrupt a person's body internal clock and lead to low feelings, 'Winter Light' aims to reflect how people create a sense of good mental health during these naturally dull, dark months.

 

Pschologically, the activities people do to maintain good mood during the winter months, can be illustrated through the artworks.  However, organically, the natural winter light in the landscape can be reflected through abstract or a literal sense.  The majority of light, in a winter scene, can be demonstrated through a warm street light, a warm house light seeping through a window or/and even a crisp sunrise or sunset in a natural setting.

 

It is the cross between and the searching for the light either in a natural or fictitious setting. The natural light in winter months, needs to be captured quickly as it does not last for long. The ficitious light, is set up manmade to create the ambiance of cosiness and comfort.  

 

We are looking for artist's to respond to the title 'Winter Light' through their own interpretations.    Landscapes, domestic scenes and/or a mixture of both through a literal illutrative approach or by abtract means and in the form of any artistic medium true to each artist.
