J. Mane Gallery invites submissions for its In Full Bloom botanical and floral online juried art exhibition for the month of October 2018.  

Throughout the history of art, certain subjects have resonated particularly strongly with artists and audiences alike. Trends reveal art's most popular muses, with flowers at the forefront.

Rooted in ancient art and still prevalent today, depictions of blossoms, blooms, and other botanical elements can be found in many of the most significant art movements, whether carved into clay or starring in a still-life. 

For this competition, artists are encouraged to share their artistic vision and interpretation  of botanical and floral art. Botanical subjects can include flowers, herbs, fruit, leaves, plants and related botanical and floral subjects. The artwork can vary from realism to surrealism to abstraction, and all media are accepted, including 3-D. All artists over the age of 18, regardless of location or experience, are encouraged to submit their best inspired work.

We are pleased, artist Jin Li will be our judge for the In Full Bloom competition.  Webson(Lin) Ji is an artist dedicating on having a voice for his generation using art works as an expression. After he got his bachelor degree from China Academy of China, China, he went to America to take the master degree program in Savannah College of Art and Design, USA.  You can view his work on his website.
