F11: Digital Paintings for Full Screen.

Derfner Judaica Museum + The Art Collection invites artists to submit work for an upcoming virtual exhibition, “F11: Digital Paintings for Full Screen.” Submissions should be digital paintings on any theme intended to be viewed exclusively in a virtual space. "F11" refers to the function key that opens full screen viewing in most internet browsers. In the Covid era when many art spaces are closed or open at limited capacity, online exhibitions have become ubiquitous. Such exhibitions have utilized diverse platforms to display physical artwork that would normally be seen in-person at art fairs, museums and galleries. "F11" inverts this practice: It features art created to be viewed exclusively in a digital format and exhibited virtually.

A successful applicant's work will consider the technical strategies unique to the medium of digital painting that do not simply replicate traditional painting. These may include using customized tablet brushes, pre-made brush sets, choosing whether or not to “undo” a paint stroke, the use of layers, color palette options and the process of how these elements are applied to a digital canvas.

Selected artists will receive a $400 honorarium. Applicants must be 18 years or older at time of submission.

Derfner Judaica Museum + The Art Collection is a non-profit, non-sectarian art museum and gallery on the campus of the Hebrew Home at Riverdale in the northwest Bronx in New York City. For more information about the Museum, visit www.riverspringliving.org/art.
