Work will be available to view on The Art League website, and on the Art Thief App. More information will be available soon. If you have questions, please contact gallery@theartleague.org.

Open exhibits do not limit theme, medium, process or content. Artists may enter any current work made within 5 years.

Digital Submission Deadline: Wednesday, April 15, 2020 by midnight.

Guidelines

  • Artist must be a current exhibiting artist member of The Art League gallery.
  • All works must adhere to the Gallery hanging and framing requirements. For 2D artworks, no clip frames are permitted and hanging wire must be attached to the frame, not the backing. 2D artworks must have hanging wire. No saw tooth hangers permitted. Canvases may be gallery wrapped with no visible staples.
  • Artists may enter any current work made within 5 years.
  • Works are chosen by the selected juror’s curatorial vision and aesthetic.

We expect to notify artists of the results ten days after the deadline.
Work will be displayed online only. If a piece sells, drop off and pick up of the artwork will be arranged on a case by case basis
