June 2014 Art Competition

June 2014: Patriotic / Freedom

“Freedom has been given to us, through the sacrifice and courage of our fellow Americans. It is our duty to follow our dreams and pursue our destiny. That is why I paint.”- Sharon Hawkshawe

Every Independence Day, Americans remember their freedom. Time is spent with family and friends grilling out and watching fireworks. This holiday brings on its own set of traditions and has a rich history behind it. What traditions do you have for your Independence Day? What does it look like to be patriotic? What does freedom mean? How do other countries celebrate their freedom?

Contemporary Art Gallery Online celebrates Independence Day by placing A Call to Artists to participate in the Second Annual Patriotic / Freedom Art Competition and Exhibition.
