Call for Art
PHINNEY CENTER GALLERY
Up and Coming Artists
Submission deadline is February 2, 2020
A jury of art teachers will select art to be displayed from March 11 to April 17. We anticipate showing work from 20-30 artists. The opening artist reception will be held Friday, March 13, 7-9 pm during the PhinneyWood Art Walk. You may submit up to three works. The application fee is $20; you may request to waive the fee in the application if it is a hardship.
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.
Artists must be aged 25 or younger. 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.

Meet the Jury
is a Seattle-based visual designer and printmaker specializing in letterpress printing. Exploring the duality of letterforms as language and image, she composes editioned work using metal and wood typefaces, at times incorporating linoleum carving, pressure printing and collographs. Amy holds a BFA in graphic design from James Madison University (Virginia), is a member of Seattle Print Arts, and shows her work nationally in group and solo shows. She is currently working on a series of prints made using non-recyclable plastic scraps, calling into question our need for these items and exploring the possibility of a less wasteful approach to the everyday business of living. She prints in her private studio (Amada Press), teaches letterpress printing at Seattle’s School of Visual Concepts, and was a 2018 recipient of the Artist Trust GAP Award.
