Art doesn't just happen. It's a process of experimentation, development, intuition, research, doodling, dreaming, creating. And a lot of this process is documented in the artist's sketchbook, where creative ideas are worked out. These small treasures of the artist's mind are often kept stored away, to be leafed through on rare occasions to reminisce or to spark a new idea.
These visual diaries are wonderfully revealing, telling us about the way an artist thinks and works. We would like you to share a few pages of your sketchbook with us in an exhibition titled 'Reveal! Inside the Artist's Mind' at the Visual Voice Art Gallery in Montreal, Canada.
Artist's submissions should be documentations of experimentation and development of ideas, not practice renderings. Your sketchbook pages should be visually engaging but also tell us a story of how you worked out a particular idea.
This exhibition, while having a strong visual focus, is not limited to the visual arts. We also invite of authors, movie makers, designers, illustrators, and musicians to share pages from their notebooks .
This exhibition is open to all Art+Culture members. There are no submission or participations fees.
For the logistics of the exhibition, such as how to submit your work for review, shipping, pricing, etc, please check out the Reveal! exhibition's Art+Culture page here [link].
We are looking forward peeking into your creative minds!
