Artists aged 40 years and over are invited to submit to the next virtual exhibition at The Curator’s Salon.

The transition from childhood to adulthood is what we commonly think of when we hear the phrase ‘coming of age.’ But what about the sense of freedom and exploration those of us often feel in our later years? A second ‘coming of age’ presents itself where we embrace change and learn to re-fuel our creative energy.

Whether you find yourself picking up art again after a period of time away, or it’s been a lifelong practice, embodying a transitional time in life gives us the confidence to create and share the art that’s always been within.
