Art Mission Exhibition Open Call
The ART Mission & Theater seeks to exhibit works of artistic excellence by emerging artists, both regional and national. We will consider recent works in all media as well as fully articulated concepts for projects or installations by artists or guest curators. Submissions must demonstrate a serious and professional body of work. We are also specifically looking to exhibit more pop surrealism and low brow artists.
There is no fee for submissions. 50% of the artwork must be for sale. The ART Mission will retain 40% of the amount paid on sales made during the exhibition or for a period of one year on any sales resulting from exposure or referral from the ART Mission & Theater.
Artists are responsible for shipping costs and arrangement of their work to arrive and depart the gallery at the agreed upon dates. Artists are responsible for hotel arrangements; we can recommend good hotels with excellent accommodations and discounted rates through our gallery association. The ART Mission does PR online with the local newspapers in our town and surrounding areas as well as tv and radio. If the artist wishes to make postcards for their exhibition, they are responsible for cost and production; we publicize the artist’s work in our newsletter that reaches over 2200 individuals on our email newsletter list.
In an effort to be more sustainable, we will accept submissions by email. Send support materials to email@example.com
Submit 10-12 digital images of your work using standard image formats, jpegs are preferable, not too large an image file, but good resolution. Do not submit materials that require plug-ins, extensions or other executables to be downloaded or installed.
Provide a script that is numbered to match images on and label the email with your name ( ex. Aaron Ohlson– 2012 Submissions). Include also the title, medium, date and size of the work. Please specify if you are applying to a specific show.
Include a current artist resume (education, exhibitions, experience to date).
If your submission is for an installation or curatorial concept, you may send a detailed proposal describing the project, including any materials that would assist us in evaluation of the work.
Artists may include previous exhibition catalogs, articles and essays about their work.
