U.S. National Deadline: December 23, 2018 – Petz
& Animalz stampede and stock the 3 Square Art Gallery this January
& February 2019! See the fury, the friendly, the fierce and the
wild. See how local and national artists create art using the subject of
Petz and Animalz (what does the z stand for you say? Maybe the z is for
zebra.. or zillions of new ideas.. or something new and different than
just the typical!?)
Pets and animals have been an ongoing theme in art. Artists use
animals in their work as the sole subject or with other figures and
scenery to convey emotions and ideas that were previously unimaginable.
From the earliest cave paintings to modern abstract works of art, pets
and animals conjure our imagination of the wild or of the close and
loyal friend. They create emotions and themes that we can relate to. Our
bond with animals is as old as the notion of family. Bring out the purr
of a kitten or the roar of a lion using realism or abstraction.
Accepted artists will be Juried for Gold and Silver cash prizes and
1st and 2nd Honorary awards. All accepted artists will be posted on the 3
Square Art website and our social media platforms. Top artists will be
selected by 3 Square Art to be represented in our online gallery coming
Exhibit Date: Thursday, January 31, 2019 – Friday, February 22, 2019.
3SA Exhibitions are open to any artist, professionals as well as
students are encouraged to enter. We are looking for all types of
works–painting, sculpture, photography and more–works that show off your

and use of the subject matter.
