Call for Entries

We all need escape. Escape manifests in many forms, on many levels, in a variety of ways.

Where do you escape to? Perhaps your backyard, a land far far away, a space in your mind? Perhaps for you escape isn’t a where but is manifested in your senses. Does escape involve a journey and destination or simply contemplation and a frame of mind? Next Gallery is looking for artist’s interpretation of escape to rather than escape from. Show us the place where you seek refuge or inspiration. This is a national call, open to artwork in all mediums.
