A Call for Art is similar to an audition, in a sense. It's an opportunity for an artist to introduce a body of work to an art gallery in consideration for an upcoming exhibition. Whether this is a full collection or a small group of select pieces worthy of showing, the artwork submitted to a Call for Art represents the theme of the show through the perspective of the artist.
Check out the open Calls for Art below for our upcoming shows and exhibitions. Interested in showing your artwork with us? Apply using the buttons below and fill out the application. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us.
