"ART CONNECTS US"

 

 

Description

“Art Connects Us” is a collaborative art project for members of the Artists of Bristol. The project is designed to emphasize how we are all still united by our love of art, even when we are kept from one another by the pandemic. 

It's modeled after a project titled “We Are All Connected” by artist Beatrice Sagar. (You can see plenty of examples of decorated pieces and finished puzzles at www.instagram.com/beasagar/.) 

 

Participating artists will receive a 2-1/2” blank puzzle piece to fill with their art. The puzzle pieces will be collected and re-assembled into 11”x14” composites, each featuring the work of 20 different artists. Artists may choose to submit pieces in any of the four project themes — Seasons, Hope, Connections, or Black and White — or with no set theme. All mediums and styles are welcome. (If you use a soft medium such as pastel, charcoal, or graphite it would be helpful if you put a sealer on before returning your piece)

 

Themes

There will be four themes to choose from, plus an artist’s choice option:

    Seasons - Art set in any season of the year

    Hope - Surviving the pandemic and all the other challenges of our time 

    Connections - Things that keep us connected, literally or figuratively: bridges, social media and forms of communication, organizations, etc

    Black and White

    Artist’s Choice (i.e., no set theme)

 

Each artist may submit one puzzle piece per theme for a maximum of five pieces.
