CALL FOR ENTRY: 'The Art of Timelessness' with curator Lisa Gizara.
www.GizaraArts.com

 “As artists- one nurtures and comes to possess a visually attuned intuition. For some gaining this second sight takes a lifetime of hunting and searching. Others seem to be born with this keen sense of knowing.  Most of us have experienced these timeless yet eternal essences. Like a memory lodged deep inside our psyche- these transitory moments are illusive and appear quick as lightning. When I recognize these split second visuals- it catches my breath and my heart beats faster while I attempt to capture the fleeting second of light, composition and memory." Lisa Gizara

Gizara's note to all entrants:
"Thank you everyone for taking the time to go through your archives, selecting your best and then contributing to this online competition. I am aware of how much thought, time and effort you all went through to submit your work. And I encourage you all to continue to search the world for your "thoughts" and capture them with your cameras.

It really is a lifelong effort and endeavor to do this. And the more years that I do the same, the more finely tuned my portfolios become. Man Ray said, and I paraphrase, that when a person can take a portrait of the pope and an apple with the same attention to detail, you have truly mastered your craft. Keep on shooting!"

20% of all artist fees go to two charities a month. They're split between the curator's favorite charity and the first place winner's favorite charity.

Gizara has chosen the ASPCA for her charity.
