Connect! - Online Art Show - Guidelines

“Art is the language that connects and inspires us all.”

We seek your:

      Painting • Sculpture • Photography • Drawing • Graphic Arts • Multi-dimensional Art

Let your artistic self decide what work in  your repertoire reflects one of the many ways in which we connect with our world, with one another, with beauty, with rage. Use the language of art and share it.



This will be the beginning of  the holiday season. You are invited to offer your work for sale.
