U.S. National Deadline: January 20, 2019 – We are
very excited to announce the open call for Ning Gallery’s next
exhibition: “The Illusion and Reality.” This is an opportunity for
artists residing in the U.S. to showcase their works in a competitive

the two? The conflictions among certainty and uncertainty, existence and
nonexistence, reality and unreality are all a sort of question that has

imaginations and that of the facts. Therefore, we are looking for
artists who’d love to express their thoughts in the artworks related to
