Members Only Call for Submissions
Art Through the Ages
Art has a rich history of creation. Boundless and versatile, moving and changing with time, contributing to visual appearances of art as a timeline. This includes the many factors that form in the production process, they can be cultural, political, religious, or economic- and throughout this history we witness movements and ways of working. Paying attention to the ways in which art has formed in the past teaches us about our current works and our current world. This creates important connections between past and present- and reminds us that art simply is humanity.
Members are encouraged to experiment with combining techniques and visual references from artistic movements, allowing free flow and expression as we pave the path of new ways of creating while including the many forms beforehand. In this, we ask members to think, where do you draw your inspiration from? In all of our art, we are always communicating and creating a dialogue between artist and viewer. These interactions allow for observations and produce parallels within an art history context. Create with intent as an ode to art through the ages and share with us, what movement speaks to you in your own artistic practice? This can be through ideas, materials, techniques, or subject matter.
Art Through The Ages will be a virtual exhibition hosted on Quest’s website Questart.ca. You must be a member in good standing in order to participate in this. Submissions will be by jpeg with a short description (100 words) about your work. You may submit up to 3 works but we cannot guarantee that all pieces will be selected.
You must include: title, size (h x w), date and materials/medium with each submission.
All submissions to be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org before July 1st.
