In 1963, Josef Albers published the Interaction of Color which shared his thought process that colors are “governed by an internal and deceptive logic.” Each artist’s approach to color is intuitive and personal. Through study and/or personal insight, all artists have an inherent sense of the play of color in their work whether they are involved in abstract studies or using color to elicit associations.

CollexArt is expressly looking for artworks that show the artist’s ideas about color. Artists are invited to submit work where color is what makes the artwork complete. Open to all subject matter and styles.

Purchase Award of $1,000 – One artist will be awarded the Purchase Award at the conclusion of this call (see previous winners).

Artist Profile Page Award – Submitting artists (including the Purchase Award winner) may be invited to have their own in-depth Artist Profile Page, have their work included in the CollexArt Store and in the curated Online Exhibit Space.

Finalist CollexArt Annual Grand Prize of $5,000- This award identifies a single artwork as the best of the year. The Grand Prize will be awarded in March of 2021. Artists who are selected for Purchase Awards, Artist Profile Pages, Exhibit Space in CollexArt or for the CollexArt store are registered as finalists for the prize.
