Open Call for Submissions

Theme: A tangible asset is a physical property that has value. Such an asset can be seen and touched by anyone. From the viewpoint of a gallery, we trade in “tangible assets’, though they are sometimes ethereal and hard to assign a value to.

As an artist, how do you consider your work to be important or beneficial, and to have a connection with the viewer? How does their interaction with your art become a tangible asset in their consciousness; something the can take away and “own”, either physically through purchase, or by the impression it imprints on their mind. Will they remember it after they’ve left its presence?
