October Online Group Art Show: “The Sweet Life”


Ah, La Dolce Vita, Joie de Vivre, Life is Sweet!

These are the phrases we use to convey how joyful our lives are.

Artists have always enjoyed creating artworks that portray their ideal ways of living or things that bring them joy. They wish to capture the essence of enjoying life’s sweet moments from savoring a decadent dessert to falling in love. Not only do artists like to show people things that bring them joy, but many of the HMVC Gallery alumni artists like to use art as a source of happiness and enjoyment.

In our October group show ”The Sweet Life” we celebrate all the things that make our lives sweet and joyful.

We welcome artworks from all mediums of visual art, except AI-created art, and video/film.

★ Digital entries must be received by September 27th, 2023 before 11:59 pm Eastern Standard Time.
★ Notification of acceptance will be sent by email by September 30th.
★ The show will premiere on October 1st and end on October 31st.



All Artists participating in the online group show will be featured on our Website and Virtual Gallery platform. All artists will be awarded an HMVC Gallery New York certificate of participation. A video clip of “The Sweet Life” featuring all participating artists’ artworks will be screened on a jumbotron billboard in New York City’s famous Times Square later in October.

We are delighted to announce that we will be giving cash prizes to two talented artists!

Best of show winner: $150
Second place winner: $100
Third place winner: Online Solo Show

The winners of Best of Show and Second Place need to have a working PayPal account to receive their prize money. If the winner of the cash prize fails to provide HMVC Gallery New York with a working PayPal account, the winner will be forfeited and HMVC will be entitled to select another winner. The prize will be sent to the winner within 14 days of responding to HMVC.
The Third Place winner will have their own online Solo Show at HMVC Gallery New York and the show will run for a month. The Solo Show winner will also receive an HMVC Gallery New York solo certificate recognizing their achievement.
