Searching the North, South and Central Americas, we find that even in our most primitive state, we have a deep desire for knowledge and beauty. Many of our ancient cultures used art to express those feelings and desires, as well as to explain the unknown. In the Western Hemisphere we have many examples of this. From the upper reaches of North America to the furthest tip of South America, every culture has left us their thoughts in the form of art, some buried deep within the earth and others still standing tall throughout the centuries. The Maya is an example of this, utilizing art in language, architecture, and decorative beauty.
It is in this spirit we wish to inspire all artists of 2012! This is a time to take a deeper look at a historic view of life and the world around us. Through art we, as well as our ancestors, are able to explain what life is, how the world works, and how we see the world as individuals. We are even able to express ideas of what we believe may lie beyond life.
This is an opportunity to show original and cultural art work based on a primitive outlook or an influence of the ancient Americas
Please let us know if you have any questions. We will have an application on our website very soon.
