Call for Artists Earth Hunger II

ART IN TIME OF TRANSITION

Es.Arte Gallery, would like to encourage you to participate in our second edition of “Earth Hunger II” with the theme “ART IN A TIME OF TRANSITION”.

There is a quote from Leonardo Da Vinci that says: “We are not living in times of change, but a change of era” and it is under this inspiration that the concern arises to call you to be an active part of this change. We are aware that art does not only belong to the artist, but above all it belongs to society.

From Es. Arte Gallery we want to ignite the creative flame so that it transcends beyond the atelier and spreads. Tell your story, liberate, heal and vindicate so that your art can be the catalyst and the world voice.  No matter how you feel, no matter your beliefs, simply speak out… and help empower the mission that ART has, to be a legacy and witness to our culture.  “Civilisations are not remembered for their businessmen, bankers or lawyers; they are remembered for their art“. And now more than ever, at this moment, we have the commitment to shout out our feelings from our artistic discipline, so we invite you, the artists, to share that creation that contributes a critical or sentimental touch that marks the history of art.

In addition, we want to offer the artist the opportunity to be active and present. This is our imperative obligation as a gallery, and consequently, we want to open the way and give light to the artist.

On this occasion, for the exhibition Earth Hunger II we will select six artists to exhibit in a group show, Earth Hunger II and one of them will be selected to join the exclusive selection represented artists by Es.Arte Gallery, as well as the active art circle of Marbella and the Costa del Sol.
