URBAN RANCH PROJECT on Facebook is an "animal" advocacy and social and environmental activism arts venue that I founded in March 2012. Its mission is to bring awareness to the interconnectedness of racism, sexism, ageism, speciesism, and other human-made hierarchical prejudices. Using the power of social media URP inspires change. URP has received a 2013 Culture & Animals Foundation Multi-media Research Grant to continue and expand its activities, one of which is the "URP 2013 GUEST CURATOR PRESENTATION SERIES".

Exhibition theme:

Orb, Orbit, Orbital: the art sphere (flat and 3D)

Deadline for submissions: Sept 15th 2012

Artists and critics use the word *banal or banality* to describe Damien Hirst's spot paintings. But the truth is that many artists paint spots, circles, spheres and orbs on canvas and paper. Textile designers have long created spot and dot patterns for fabrics. Dots and spots both ubiquitous and classic. This common denominator or commonality of design and fine art composition adds to the difficulty the artist must face to produce new and original work using dots and spots. Are spots so easy or at all banal after all?

We are seeking the your work that contains spots, dots, circles, spheres or orbs.

submit  2-dimensional wall-art images for exhibition in upcoming online gallery shows in 3D Virtual Gallery spaces.

Two virtual exhibition spaces for this project and a preview:

Virtual Art Space Gallery http://www.3dvas.com/

Preview show: http://www.3dvas.com/galleries/gallery.php?ex=5770

The second virtual gallery site is Exhibbit.com

(**Artists: send direct links to your artworks. Create an online portfolio of the work you want us to view--this can be on Facebook or other sites--then send us the link. Note: If your work is not easy for us to view it will not be considered.)
