DAILE GALERIE is now inviting visual expressionist artists working with paint on canvas, mixed media on canvas, or fine art paper to consider for our second virtual exhibition of the year, based on expressionism.

The term is so elastic that it can accommodate artists ranging from Vincent van Gogh to Egon Schiele and Wassily Kandinsky. Fees: €30 up to 6 works; Submission fees are non-refundable. (via PayPal)
