Art Exhibition: Vol 3.

Sun May 12, 2019, 6:14 PM

Tokyo Street Night by arsenixc
Hello, fellow artists! Welcome to Volume 3 of Art Exhibition (AE).

AE is a non-profit project solely run by Kellsyy to promote various artistic abilities. Each Volume will feature 55 unique artworks from all categories including Poetry, Traditional, Digital, Anime/Manga, and Animation.

This Feature comprises of 5 primary initiatives, each aiming to help other artists gain praise/feedback from other Deviants. Each Volume is published bi-weekly on Sundays around 8 PM EST.

With that being said, enjoy! La la la la 

AE 1: Project 10,000.

Project 10,000 aims to showcase 10 Deviations that should have 10,000+ views. This can be based on the artwork's originality and/or the story/emotion behind the art piece. Hand-picked by Kellsyy herself, these artworks show excelling talent.

Remember to support these art pieces with a comment or favourite!

AE 2: Words Of Gold.

Words Of Gold features some of the best poetry/stories in DeviantArt (generally under-rated). Also chosen by Kellsyy, each text is able to creatively interweave words. This creates messages that touch their audience deeply.

If you need a new author/poet to follow, check the ones shown!

AE 3: Under 1,000.

Under 1,000 aspires to help artworks under 1,000 views/favourites gain recognition. Although these artists don't gain many views, their art proves that beauty is not always seen by all. This is also selected by Kellsyy.

AE 4: Spread Love!

Spread Love! headlines 3 talented artists who are passionate about the arts/community. Kellsyy chooses to put these artists in the spotlight because of their artistic gifts and/or contributions to the DeviantArt community. 

Say hello to Volume 3's featured artists...

Featured Artist 1: MarioFegan.

MarioFegan seems to have a gifted eye for Traditional Landscapes. Every masterpiece he creates is with a sense of peace, an aspect most artworks fail to capture. With a loyal band of 623 watchers (as of April 30, 2019), Mario conquers the heart of many viewers from the comfort of Ecuador. Show your support to one of the most under-rated artists of the Traditional Art community!

Featured Artist 2: Poopikat.

Poopikat is a Canadian with a colourful, cartoony artistic taste. An accomplished artist in disguise, she is able to create artworks with a colourful, eye-catching vibe. Both her masterpieces of many expressions and heartwarming personality continue to push her towards success.

Featured Artist 3: Takamin.

Thought you needed a $3000 Tablet to be the best artist? Think again; Takamin defies the odds with only a pen. With a detailed, professional, and bold outlook on his artworks, Ivan proves that expensive tools do not mean an outstanding artist. Proudly presenting the Filipino community, Kellsyy is honoured to name him Art Exhibition Volume 3's Featured Artist!

Advertisement CornerHi everyone! :wave:

This is the place where you can advertise:


requests for commissions
reference offers - all media


charity donations

You can add all the details in the comments, and feel free to check the other events as well! :typerhappy:

Please keep the content reasonable also for our youngest members.


For your benefit and ours, do not submit any art to this group's quality controlled folders that breaks these guidelines.
It takes time for us to decline, and just adds to the backlog.
We usually can't even provide a reason for declination, but it's usually a matter of art quality.
So, here are the basics:
And of course, we still have the beginners art showcase for art that doesn't meet these.
NOTE: Only the "Best Of" folders are judged. All art gets into the June 2013 folder.
:bulletred: Don't send in any poorly done WIPs sketches or badly scanned pictures. We want the finished product! Send in your WIPs to other groups!
:bulletred: Digital art has to have shading, or at least be artistically flat, with nice patterns and form.
This means no muro or ms paint stuff, unless it is WELL done.
:bulletorange: We want AWESOME photography. No self-shots and no plain  face shots either. It must be artistic, and has to be interesting to
Group Update #69 : Your Feedback.Feedback regarding the new Submission Guidelines was mixed to negative.
In this Q+A interview, our group Founder will try to clear up some misconceptions and fears about the new submissions rules and folder system.
Q: Why was this new system implemented?
A: Because someone trashed the group, erased all the folders and made me have to redo everything.
Q: So, what is this new system, and why did you change it?
A: Our group was in crisis mode. We were dealing with too many submissions a day, and none were monitored. Most times, people would just unwatch the group and lose access to important updates about social events.
Something had to be done. This hack actually was a blessing in disguise.
It allowed the admins and I to design a new folder system that we thought would provide the best of both worlds: A place for expert premium artists to showcase their work amongst their peers AND a place where beginner artists could submit and be inspired.
Q: That's nice, but exactly WHAT is the system
Group Update #H1N1: Updated FAQ and Clarification.:icondeirdre-diuran: said: :iconsaysplz:"Could we get the Rules and FAQ updated with the recent submission details and changes, and a clearer rule on frequency of submissions (how many per folder per day/week/month per person)?
Much appreciated :)"
:iconslambox: :saysplz: Well, I think that's a good idea. While my previous post gave a general overview of what to expect; , it wasn't really CLEAR about what limits exactly are in place.
This post is.
Most folders marked "Best of" have  limits of 2 submissions a day- 2 deviations a week, which are quality checked. So CHOOSE WISELY, even if BOTH are declined, your limit is still up until next week.
The June 2013 folder allows you to choose 3 deviations a day and submit them.
The Beginner art folder has 2 a day to cut down on spam, and the art dump has 5 a day.
This group has standards. While we welcome all artists, certain things ju
