2020 Annual International Open Exhibition

ISEA continues its work moving forward and celebrating innovation in art. While a physical exhibition was not possible this year, we are proud to present the 2020 exhibition virtually. Our online exhibition celebrates more international members than ever before. Entries have been accepted from the United States, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, Bahrain, Honduras, Singapore, South Africa, United Kingdom and Wales.

In a year of firsts, ISEA accepted video pieces for the first time. Over the years we have seen some collaborations, but this year there were four accepted collaborations. ISEA added a new membership level to accommodate this revolutionary way of developing art with others!

Every year there are new and exciting “happenings” in this the International Society of Experimental Artists. The ISEA Board and the Local Organizing Committee in St. Albert are extremely disappointed that the passion and effort our team has expended will not result in a physical exhibition this year. But with all that we have accomplished, despite adversity, ISEA has moved forward with great expectations for all of our future endeavors.

Please consider enlivening your home or office by purchasing the work of one of these excellent artists! Inquiries regarding sales may be sent via email to president@iseaartexhibit.org and we will forward your inquiry directly to the artist. Artists will process transactions, shipping, and handling for you. Thank you for viewing this ISEA Annual Exhibition today!

To bring this work to fruition, I used over 30 different procedures and materials, many of which I had never worked with before. It has acrylic paint, oil pastel, newspaper printing techniques, paint applied with a roller, newspaper strips with paint applied between the strips, charcoal lines, sanded charcoal powder, watercolor pencil, paint applied through a cardboard printing process, Caran d’Ache pencils, graphite pencil, watercolor and acrylic sprays, and much more.
