Vanitas is symbolic artwork, most often still life, that reflects on one's vanity and the transience of life. We challenge you to create your own vanitas still life either in the traditional Flanders/Dutch style, or your own style.

Plein Air: In the Garden
Plein Air refers to landscape art completely entirely on site. This year's proposed site is the garden, whether it's yours, a friends, or a public garden space. All works must be completed on site. All sites must be referenced in your artist statement. We suggest artists include what drew them to their chosen site and any challenges face while creating on site that day. Because of the nature of the theme, photography is not allowed.
