“Flora & Fauna” 2017 National Juried Exhibition - at Arc Gallery
DEADLINE: April 24th, 2017
What plants or animals inhabit your Earthly Paradise? Are they life forms native to where you live or exotic flora and fauna from far reaches of the planet? Would you bring back extinct species, import life forms from other galaxies, or create phantasmagorical plants and animals from your imagination? Where do humans fit into your paradise? We welcome artists whose concerns are ecology-based as well as those whose subject matter is traditionally flora, fauna or landscapes. You are invited to display your technical prowess in realism, abstraction or fantasy. We are seeking wide-ranging interpretations that will transform our gallery into a virtual Shangri-La.

Gray’s skills extend themselves to professional art consultant services and she has overseen both commercial and residential art programs. Her knowledge of the art market, sophisticated eye and understanding of art placement have gained her the trust and respect of her clients. You will find the highest level of artistic expression in an atmosphere that is welcoming and informative at Seager Gray Gallery, offering some of the best contemporary art on the West Coast.
