Call Details

2nd Annual Color Sense Competition: Last chance to enter! We have extended the deadline for entries. The deadline is now September 21st. If you completed a submission prior to September 7th you are eligible for a free code to add additional work (fees waived).

CollexArt seeks artworks that express the artist’s ideas about color.  How an artist approaches color is personal and intuitive. Through study and personal insight, artists have an inherent sense of the interplay of colors in their work whether they are conducting abstract studies or using color to elicit associations.

Artists are asked to submit works that address the studied use of color, where color is a big part of the artist’s toolset and is what makes the work complete.  Accepting all original visual media excluding video and other time-based media such as animated Gifs. All styles and subject matter accepted.
