Call for Art
The People’s Gallery in St. Paul announces a call for art submissions for our upcoming Art Show tentatively titled “Diverse Affections”. We’re looking for art of any medium – photography, sculpture, paintings, prints, etc. Be a part of a unique and interesting show!
About the Show:
Diverse Affections’ will showcase work regarding diversity and social relationships. We want art that’s about different kinds of people and the different kinds of relationships they have with those close to them, whether those relationships are those shared by friends, family, lovers, or community. We encourage creativity in interpretations on this theme. If your interpretation isn’t obvious, please let us know in writing how you see your art fitting into this show.
Work submitted for the show can be any medium, so long as it somehow matches the theme. Submitted art should be ready to hang or otherwise display upon receival at the gallery. For this show, we’re especially encouraging the submission of prose, poetry, or other written work to go on the walls, so long as it’s made displayable (e.g., printed and framed).
Any art that is selected after our jury process will hang in the gallery for at least 3 weeks starting around July 21st. A reception will be held shortly after the show has opened.
Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org containing the following:
— Digital images of the work you are submitting (multiple pieces may be submitted). They must be in the .JPG file format. The file of each piece should be labeled with your last name + first name + a number + title of piece. Example: If an artist named John Smith submitted two pieces, one called “Flower” and one called “Self Portrait,” he would name the files: “SmithJohn1Flower.jpg and SmithJohn2SelfPortrait.jpg”
— The titles of your pieces (if they have one)
— The medium, dimensions, and prices of each piece if for sale
— A short artist bio (1-3 paragraphs)
— If your work, or any particular piece among it, has a story behind it that you wish to share, it is encouraged (but not required) that you include a short summary of it with the piece to potentially accompany it on display.
Deadline: 10:00 pm, Monday, July 7
Fee: The fee for participation in the show is $25 for the first piece and $10 for each additional piece, payable after acceptance. The fee only applies to works that are selected for the show, not all works submitted. No commission will be charged on sales of artwork. Please contact us to arrange terms of sale of any merchandise related to your art, such as prints, cards, T-shirts, etc.
If your work is selected for the show, you will be notified by July 9th at the latest. Art must be framed or otherwise made ready-to-hang or display. Art will need to be delivered to the gallery between July 10th and July 16h.
