Reality Removed: Call for Submissions, World of Glass

The World of Glass Arts Centre in St Helens is currently seeking submissions from artists across the Northwest of England working in any medium including digital, written,sculptural, paintings and photography for our forthcoming exhibition Reality Removed.

What we see, we understand because it is real or realistic; but what happens when we remove the reality in art?  Space, time and structure take on a limitless entity that require you the viewer to interpret art when reality is removed.  Figures become shapes become colour become monochrome, sky merges into horizons slipping into shorelines that leave no boundaries.  Like the borders of great countries and empires only the canvas edge or form surface can dictate the parameters of what is defined.
