Theme and Selection:
The judges for this art call welcome artists and photographers whose works provide viewers with unique interpretations of environmental settings—either viewed or imagined. These artists’ visions may transport the viewer to a lovely landscape, cityscape, seascape, or mindscape that invites them to enter their realm of beauty, uniqueness, serenity, etc. However, works reflecting human impact against the land, seas, etc., always major concerns, are encouraged as well. The earth’s landscapes are places of thought, meditation, reflection, tranquility, and at times sorrow. The landscape artists’ creations are defined and weighted only by the depth at which their presentations enrich our heart and conscience. All representational, abstract, or surrealistic entries are welcome.
