Struggle for Happiness, has been accepted!
Today, I received an acceptance notice from Islip Arts Council about the recently applied open call " Just Yellow".
If you are selected for the open call, the gallery will notify you of the date of dropping off the painting and the fact that the painting is ready to be hung on the wall. They will also inform you of the opening reception date and ask for artist statements again if necessary.
In most open calls, on average, about 3 JPG image files are sent together. The application fee is between $10-50. In most open calls, the judges are appointed, the judges decide their own theme, and the works that fit this theme are selected.
As always, when you submit your work to the gallery's open call and receive a message of acceptance, you can visit the gallery in earnest, and because it is a great opportunity to meet the director or curator in person, artists often pay attention to the open call.
This time, I applied for 2 digital artworks and 1 watercolor painting, and among them, digital artwork was selected. I chose about 3 pictures based on the theme of Just Yellow.
The selected works are struggle for the happiness below.
Yellow is the color of the sun, symbolizing gentleness and joy, and is the color of maturity. Yellow, which represents maturity, becomes golden when idealized. The golden fields, golden ears, golden fruits, and the golden color of golden autumn symbolize gold and money, representing wealth, authority and abundance. The symbol colors of spring are bright green and yellow.
Yellow, which symbolizes wealth and happiness, radiates good energy by itself. But is it possible to get this energy just because it is yellow? Isn't yellow constantly moving and making waves by itself, and that wave conveys warmth and happiness to us?
This yellow energy is hidden in every corner of our daily life.
Yellow is a color that gives confidence to people with low self-esteem, and is known to stimulate brain activity and develop creativity and thinking skills.
Therefore, getting close to a yellow painting or yellow object can help boost creativity and build low self-esteem.Therefore, getting close to a yellow painting or yellow object can help boost creativity and build low self-esteem.
