Flora & Fauna Show - Call for Entries


Show Dates:  September 13 - 30, 2018

Entry Deadline: August 16, 2018

Flora and fauna is the world of living things. “Flora” designates plant life, and is also the Roman goddess of plants and flowers. In Roman mythology, Flora symbolized nature, flowers and fertility. Fauna was the Roman goddess of animals, wildlife, fertility and spring. Hence the word “Fauna” designates all animal life. What does Flora and Fauna mean in today’s world? How do you relate to nature in today’s technological environment?

CORE NEW ART SPACE invites artists in all mediums to interpret their definition of Flora and Fauna and is open to all. Entries must be submitted electronically by August 16, 2018 and accompanied by a $35.00 fee.
