The concept of wabi sabi manifests in many forms. Whether it’s the attributes an object achieves as it ages and takes on the character of its use, or the subtle loveliness of imperfections in man-made environments or natural settings alike, wabi sabi is a quiet philosophy of hidden beauty which can be found anywhere one is mindful to seek it.
Artists’ works for this call for entries must exemplify the concept of wabi sabi in any manifestation. All media will be considered.

It was the year of Reagan’s reelection, New Coke, the Achille Lauro, and “We Are The World.” It was the height of the Cold War, and a time of economic prosperity and unbridled consumerism. Yuppies, punks, mods, and valley girls walked the same sidewalks. Salt-N-Pepa formed, with their first recording “Showstoppa.” Madonna performed the Virgin Tour. David Lee Roth left Van Halen. The art world was ruled by Warhol, Basquiat, Mapplethorpe, and Haring, and culture was awash in a neon palette.
This call for entry asks artists to create fine art work that references 1985 through subject choice and/or aesthetic. All media will be considered.
