Details and Registration
Submission Deadline: 16 March 2020
Submit up to 5 images for $25
Subject: Open Theme - All Media
Juror: Lotte Marijt
Exhibition Dates: 02 April 2020 to 15 July 2020
Free Choice: Regardless of who we are or where we reside and what sort of laws and customs that we live with, we still have freedom to choose what we will do and how we will live our lives. It might mean scrutiny or even persecution, but when we feel strongly enough about how we want to live or what we feel the need to create, we do it.
As artists we are often misunderstood by our families, friends and colleagues because we typically think just enough outside of the box that we have the ability to make others feel uneasy. But that is not a bad thing. Quite the contrary actually. Artists have always lead the way when it comes to new and fresh ideas and perspectives.
So we invite all artists of all colors, creeds, religions, and orientation to submit art to this open themed show that is designed to be a platform for any type of work that you are working on. Abstract to landscape, figurative to still life, video to written word, conceptual to religious in any possible media will be welcome.
Submit your work for inclusion in this ArtisTTable online exhibition titled, Free Choice, at www.ArtistTTableOnline.com. Accepted artists will have their work featured in the online exhibition showcasing their art along with descriptions of the artwork and artist contact information. Accepted artists will be eligible to win one of three prizes.

PEOPLE'S CHOICE AWARD
The ArtisTTable also is very interested in seeing what the art viewing public has to say about the art they see. From the very beginning, the ArtisTTable has had a People's Choice Award. This award also gives artists in the show more reason to promote their work that is in the exhibition. We encourage artists to share links of pages with their family, friends and fans to get as many votes as they can.
Voting is easy. Each page that contains a piece of art in our online shows has a voting button. By clicking it a vote is registered. Voting is open for as long as the exhibition is in the ArtisTTable main gallery.
The prize for the People's Choice Award is special recognition in the Awards gallery and free entry to the next ArtisTTable exhibition that they decide to enter.
WHAT IS THE ARTISTTABLE?
The ArtisTTable is an international art group that was started in 2012 to be a forum for artists to participate in juried art exhibitions. The ArtisTTable was organized and is still run by two working artists, Royce Deans from Michigan, USA and Tali Farchi from Zwolle, The Netherlands. Because of there interest in bringing together the communities of art and culture, the ArtisTTable was born.
IS THE ARTISTTABLE ONLY ONLINE?
Although the ArtisTTable was conceived as an online presence, within the first year of operation real-life meetings of artists were happening. Today nearly half of the activity and efforts of the ArtisTTable are devoted to workshops, art retreats and events that bring artists together to get to know each other and create side by side. Online exhibitions will always be a major part of the ArtisTTable, but as time passes more and more opportunities to bring artists of all walks of life together will be more and more important.
WHAT KINDS OF EVENTS DOES THE ARTISTTABLE HOST?
One of our first efforts was to present intensive figure drawing events. We have always felt is important to work from the live model regardless of what sort of artist you are. First of all the academic exercise of working with the model is second to none and it is always great to hone your skills. Secondly, working from the live model opens up new channels of creativity in your art. We have hosted 8, 12 and 24-hour figure drawing events as well as simultaneous events between our Dutch and American studio with direct video connections.
We also present a week-long painting art retreats. We have held them in the US, France, The Netherlands, and Israel. We are currently scouting new locations in many parts of the world, as well as more in the US. Our art retreats are open to artists from all disciplines, photographers, and writers, as well as other creatives, are more than welcome.
WHO ARE TALI AND ROYCE?
We are two artists that live on two different continents, and each grew up in very different cultures. They are individual artists that were brought together by art and they have worked together for nearly 12 years on many many different art projects around the world. When they are not working directly together they are creating work in their individual studios in Zwolle, The Netherlands and in Michigan, USA.
