Call for Art – Metropollenation

* Metropollenation – Call for Art

Studio 659’s big summer exhibit is all about the plants, trees, and flowers that grow in the city. Think urban farming, windowsill herb gardens, the potted cactus on your work desk, and the buildings taken over by ivy. Submission of art in any media is encouraged.

We are accepting submissions now until the show is filled or July 8, whichever comes first.

Artists of all ages in all visual media are invited to submit up to 3 pieces for consideration. All work must be completed within the last 2 years and not have been previously shown at Studio 659.  Members of Studio 659 may submit without fees. Non-members must pay a non-refundable $25 entry fee for accepted work to be shown.

To Participate, email images of your art (as a jpeg file) to artscouncil659@gmail.com. Images must be labeled as firstinitial.lastname.title (K.Smith.ArtworkTitle). For each artwork submitted, please list in your email: Your name, Title, Media, Size, Year Completed, and Price. Please also denote any special installation needs. Use “Metropollenton” in the subject line.

*The Studio retains a 30% commission for all sales; please factor this into your pricing.

Artists with work accepted into the show are expected to be present at the opening reception and promote the opening reception on their social media pages/websites leading up to the reception and promote the show during the exhibition period.
