Blind Insect Gallery’s Holiday Mini Art Exhibition
We are delighted to announce Blind Insect Gallery's second Holiday Mini Art Exhibition “ART AS POWER". We want to continue to support the arts this holiday season! Last year we named the show “BYE 2020!” as a way to finish and close a tough year. One of the great challenges of global issues is that we often feel overwhelmed and disconnected, not empowered and poised for action. Arts can play a big roll to advance social justice, bringing the invisible to light, and to create transformative experiences that spur thinking & engagement. We are looking for 100’s of small works from local and global artists who will fill the gallery creating a feast of treasures including paintings, sculptures, woodcarvings, jewelry, all ready to wear or hang. All artwork can be taken home or shipped right away when purchased.
Call for art is now open!
Open to all US based artists. Deadline to submit: 5 pm on November 11th, 2021.
Artists may submit 3-5 original artworks for consideration. No more than 4 pieces per artist will be chosen for the exhibition. Selected artworks will be displayed on a rotating basis as artwork sells, with a minimum of two artworks by each artist on display at all times (while stock is available). If accepted, artists will be notified by November 15, 2021. Space is limited so we encourage submitting your work as soon as possible. Artists that are already part of the Blind Insect Gallery permanent collection must submit new work, that has not been previously viewed at Blind Insect.
Artwork can be any medium but must fall within the following guidelines: Submitted works must be original artworks no larger than 10” x 10” x 10” (including framing/mounting). Selling artwork price must be $300 or lower per piece. Sales are split 50/50 between artist and gallery.
