Visionary Art Collective is a contemporary art & artist development company based in New York City. Our mission is to uplift artists through magazine features, virtual exhibitions, podcast interviews, and our mentorship programs.
How do our memories and experiences impact our work? As artists, we often create as a tool for visual processing. In turn, our work becomes a culmination of all that we have experienced in our lives thus far. Our memories, dreams, and perceptions are woven into narratives that are deeply personal and yet still universal. In this exhibition, we are seeking work that explores the connection between memory, experience, and perception, and how those elements inspire the creative process.
Eligibility: This opportunity is open to artists of all backgrounds and experience levels. We accept submissions from artists around the world as we are an online art platform. Must be 18+ to submit.
We accept all 2D & 3D mediums, including painting, drawing, photography, digital, prints, fiber art, collage, mixed media, sculpture, ceramics, and installation art. We do not accept film or video at this time.
Selected work from this exhibition will be included in our print magazine, New Visionary, which is available quarterly.

Ekaterina received a Bachelor's in Fine Art from Kutztown University in 2011 and since then has been exhibiting her work internationally. She is interested in expressive work exploring mood and emotion and is influenced by post-impressionism, fauvism, magical realism, which has enabled her to examine the subject of home, place, belonging, and identity over the past decade.
