Creatures Real and Imagined
For International artists

"I have known such a creature..." Charles Altamont Doyle

Creatures Real and Imagined explores the ways in which animals and creatures, both real and imagined have been a presence in the visual art as metaphors, objects of fantasy and fear, sources of emotional attachment and connection to the physical and non-physical realms.

uBe Art wants to show the spectrum of ways in which creatures are conjured, immortalized and depicted in the minds of artists.

​Our mixed genre format and diverse jury panel create a genuine opportunity for all artists who enter to be invited for exhibition.

EXHIBITION – uBe Art’s jury panel will choose individual pieces based on technical application, originality and concept. Our panel of professional working artists, gallery curators advertising agents, and editors are a diverse representation of all mediums.

Artwork selected for this show will be on display in a seven-week exhibition at uBe Art in Berkeley, California—located just 12 miles east of San Francisco. The gallery is a beautiful, light filled space with 25 ft ceilings attracting artists, visitors and collectors from around the Bay Area.

CRITERIA - Accepted mediums: painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, photography and digital art. Simply put, all genres are welcome! All artwork must be ready to hang; loose prints must be in plastic sleeves—no exceptions. Artwork must not exceed 50” on any side. Please be aware of artwork size, we do not want to eliminate entries solely based on exceeding dimension limits.
