The exhibition “In Search of the Human Essence” will be focusing on the social conditions of global society. Artists selected for this exhibition project will be collectively and individually discussing – through their respective body of works – several aspects of the condition of humankind at the beginning of the 21st century. This includes: environmental/eco system, socio-economical, political and gender based issues, public and individual safety, degradation of human conditions in communities, famine, health, and consumerism, among others.
The Annual Harcourt House Members’ Exhibition allows our artists to exhibit and sell their work while doubling as a fundraiser for Harcourt House in support of its art exhibition and art education programs. If artists choose to sell their work, Harcourt House will receive a 40% commission included in the price of the sale.
Each artist may submit a maximum of four (4) works for the exhibition and is guaranteed to have one work displayed, provided they adhere to the submission’s criteria (please refer to the Submission Guidelines for details).
