LUMIÈRE
Prospectus

Art Fluent supports artists worldwide through juried exhibitions and funding opportunities throughout the year.

Art Fluent invites artists worldwide to submit artwork to our online exhibit, LUMIÈRE.

THEME
LUMIÈRE-The presence of light in a work of art can bring a piece to life. Light surrounds us, defines our world, and is part of everything we see. We respond to it emotionally and try to understand it in a metaphorical and spiritual sense. One whisper of light can determine the strength and spirit of a piece. Art is all about the light; whether it is dark, bright or dull, natural or artificial, the light is the magic. Light is the component of transforming the image from ordinary to extraordinary. For this exhibition, show us LUMIÈRE from your perspective.
