UPWARD Gallery invites artists worldwide to submit artwork to our juried art exhibition and competition, Liminal Spaces.

One of the important themes in modern art has become liminal spaces, or spaces of transition, that is, disturbing and attractive spatial gaps that have acquired an independent meaning. They are read by the subconscious, even if we are not aware of this, and leave a deep emotional trace. How is this theme reflected in your art? What figurative means do you use when working with liminal spaces in your works?

All accepted pieces will be displayed in the online gallery at

The winners (1st place) are interviewed by the UPWARD Gallery editors for publication in the printed edition UPWARD’s Quarterly and on the website.

Each entrants of the competition receives a personal page in the UPWARD gallery, where they can show their art and tell about themselves.

Selected works will be featured in curated galleries on the website.

All entrants will receive electronic certificates based on the results of the competition.


All artists 18 and older are encouraged to submit their work in any medium, style, and genre.
