Call for art!
Theme: Bridging the gap—art that brings us together
All members of the community are invited to apply to the Phinney Center Gallery’s March 2019 show “Bridging the gap—art that brings us together.”
The theme is open to interpretation by each artist’s individual vision and creativity, but we are thinking of pieces that illustrate how art can close the gap – economic, cultural, social, political, geographical or otherwise – between people and help us be more compassionate, informed and observant.
The submission process is open January 15 – February 1, on our Phinney Center Gallery page. Artists will be notified by February 11.
Jurors from the local community will select art to be displayed in the Phinney Center Gallery from March 6-April 5, with the opening reception on Friday, March 8 during the PhinneyWood ArtWalk.
We anticipate showing work from 20-30 artists.
There is a $20 fee to submit your work and a limit of 3 pieces per artist. If the fee presents a hardship, please email Polly Freeman [email protected] directly.
Selling your work
Our goal is to create an open and accessible space for all in our community to celebrate art. We promote our shows and encourage sales. The Phinney Center Gallery retains a 30% commission on works sold and collects all sales tax. Selling price of artwork may not exceed $1,000; please consider the community nature of our gallery when setting your prices.
Submitted works must not have been shown previously in the Phinney Center Gallery. 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]
