INTERNATIONAL WATERCOLOR CONTEST
"Since 2016 the contemporary art gallery Galleria Esdé, has been hosting the l'International Watercolor Contest, to sustain the creative process through monetary awards and to support artists promoting
their art. Also this year could not be skip it and we could not stop, even in the middle of a worldwide pandemic.
We are living uncertain times, in which scenarios keep charging, leading us to think that getting back to normal will be difficult.
We could spend our time getting sad, waiting for normality to come back before organizing an event we would then have to cancel after a couple of months.
Or we could imagine something different, a special edition.
We enjoy meeting people in person, share good moments and meet you artists who have always cared to come and pay us a visit. But this year we had to give up art shows and events, our dear International Watercolor Exhibition especially, to which every year the finalists of the Contest participate and which last year reached over a thousand visits.
We have taken this decision so that we will not put our public and artist friends' health at risk and
also to not make false promises.
We're sailing offshore and nobody knows what will happen, but nonetheless we want to be together
with you, through a difficult yet creative, colourful and original year.
Galleria Esdé's Director
We are young people who have been working in the world of art for years now and who have
decided to give life to a special project that gathers and promote artists from all over the world.
All began in 2014, when we opened an art gallery in the heart of Cagliari's old town, a place where we presented local artists to the city's public.
The artists were just a few and strictly selected, they always presented their works under invitation and never had to pay to exhibit.
Year after year the project got bigger and in 2016 we created the International Watercolor Contest, gathering thousands of artists of several nationalities.
Today we are ready to inaugurate this new fifth edition in such a peculiar year, because we are still motivated, creative and passionate, Since 2014.

"La Galleria Esdé, galleria d'arte contemporanea è pronta ad inaugurare la quinta edizione dell'International Watercolor Contest, il Concorso Internazionale di Acquerello cui partecipano ad ogni edizione centinaia di artisti da tutto il mondo. Anche quest'anno non potevamo mancare, anche se stiamo vivendo un periodo instabile e incerto. Potevamo stare fermi e rattristarci aspettando di ritornare alla normalità, organizzare un evento per poi cancellarlo dopo qualche mese. Oppure potevamo immaginare qualcosa diverso, a un'edizione speciale.
Nessuno sa come andrà e come ne usciremo, ma vogliamo comunque essere insieme a voi, in un anno difficile ma creativo, colorato e originale.
