CALL FOR ONLINE ART EXHIBIT
As we are constantly swinging between our multiple realities, there lies a sweet spot which we leave to our imagination. For some, this is filled by magic moments of their fantasies, and for others, there is an intense desire. In this liminal space, lies your dreamland. Full of your happy memories, or beautiful things that you envision for yourself. These can be inspired by the fairytales you read as a little girl, or an alternate reality you live in. Art is the purest medium to showcase their dreamland through the array of colors, textures and layers of your own dreamland.
We hope to create this ultimate fantasy world with artists in an Online Exhibit!
