Call for Art
PHINNEY CENTER GALLERY
The Healing Power of Art
Submission deadline is August 11, 2019
Jurors from the local community will select art to be displayed in the Phinney Center Gallery from September 12 to October 18. We anticipate showing work from 20-30 artists. The opening artist reception will be held Friday, September 13, 7-9 pm during the PhinneyWood Art Walk. You may submit up to three works you believe speak to the theme “The Healing Power of Art” (you will be asked to provide a statement in the application). The application fee is $20.
The Phinney Center Gallery supports local emerging artists and is located in the historic Phinney Center in Seattle, Washington. Our gallery shows are advertised to 20,000 local community members and thousands of people visit the Phinney Center each month.
Submissions must be original works not shown previously in the Phinney Center Gallery. Artists must live or work in the Pacific Northwest. Pieces may not be larger than 3’6” wide and/or 6’ tall and must weigh less than 15 pounds. Given the constraints of our gallery, we can only accept 2D media. While the PNA appreciates all forms of artistic expression, as a public space that caters to kids of all ages, we are unable to display any artworks depicting frontal nudity.
Please direct any questions to Polly Freeman at [email protected].
