Our World Underwater is proud to announce they are bringing back the art show this year!

The juried art show is open to all visual artists and/or divers with artwork showcasing the beauty and conservation of the aquatic and marine environments.

Art Flows Like Water will be curated by Chicago artist, Cecile Derel.

Deadline for submissions: Thursday, February 9, 2017


Submissions are open to the following mediums: Painting, Drawing, Sculpture and Digital Art. Standard photography and video will not be considered for this art show as OWU provides a separate photography/video competition, see: www.underwatercompetition.com. Dive site maps will be considered ineligible as this best fits cartography.

Cash prizes will be awarded to First, Second and Third place winners! Artists accepted into the art show will also receive free admission to Our World Underwater.

$20 non-refundable entry fee is required for the artist to submit one (1) to four (4) works of art. Payment of fee is for consideration and is not a guarantee of acceptance. All artwork is to be for sale, with 80% going to the artist and 20% to Our World Underwater to be used for conservation charities.
