    Theme and Selection:

    Family Members 2018” – Artistic portrayal of family members (clan, people, folk, tribe, ancestors, group, etc.) is as personal and subjective as each family member is unique. One piece of art can evoke unbridled emotions, thoughts, feelings, and responses that draw the observer into their own untold story. The manner of visually capturing “family members” has changed dramatically over time and the interpretation of its meaning is dependent on the situational perspective of the artist. The judges for this demonstrative competition are looking for the artist’s expressive interpretation of “family members” in their artwork that effectively conveys their definition of the term and evokes a reaction in the viewer. All still art medium works are encouraged for submission.
