Four Points Contemporary 4th Bi-annual Open Juried Online International Art Competition

Four Points Contemporary  honors the merit and significance of a life dedicated to serious artistic exploration and growth. We believe that the artist’s ideas, energy and creative drive cannot bear fruit without periods of time devoted to experimentation, education, and personal reflection. We also acknowledge that artists need opportunities to explore at various stages of their artistic careers.
