In trying to define the undefinable, we say that abstracts have subjects transformed to their essential elements or into non-objects, or simply to non-representational images. Admittedly, Abstract is hard to define and artist interpretations are welcome as part of this conversation on a significant and current photographic direction. Emerging to established artists are encouraged to submit. All types of photographic processes and presentations are eligible.

Juror: All images will be selected by Elizabeth Houston, Owner and Director of Elizabeth Houston Gallery, NYC. The gallery’s initiation to the contemporary scene imbues fresh voices from artists who work in the present and explore a cornucopia of facets. The Gallery is committed to bringing their artists work to exhibitions both home and abroad and has met success with collectors and critics alike and been reviewed in The Wall Street Journal, The New Yorker, The Village Voice, and The New York Times among others.
