Portraiture now is over!
Portraits are an intimate view of the subject matter which, aim to present a description of the character, sentiment or identity of an individual or place. These visual clues about the subject are presented in various ways, such as, employing a particular technique or the application of varying media. In this call we want to see your artistic approach in presenting self-portraits or portraiture.
All art mediums will be considered in this call for submissions, from photography, wall sculpture, fabric, mixed media, all paintings and drawings including, oil, acrylic, pastels, ink, graphite, etc. Sizes up to 12 feet are acceptable. Work must be able to be hung on a wall to be considered for the live exhibition. Freestanding 3D artworks will be displayed online only.
We are now accepting video and poetry entries for online shows. Accepted entries for this online exhibition will be judged again in the coming months for a collective live exhibition at our Los Angeles gallery. The artists will be asked if they wish to submit their artwork for the collective exhibition, which is not a requirement to being a part of the online exhibition. Entry fee for this art competition is $35 for 3 entries, $5 for additional entries.
All submissions must represent the actual artwork as closely as possible. If your work is misrepresented in any way - meaning the picture diverges greatly from what the work actually looks like in color, shape, or dimensions etc., we reserve the right to refuse to hang the artwork if it should be chosen for a live show.
If you are searching for a gallery that will showcase your art inspired by portraiture then submit to our art contest for a chance to be part of our juried exhibition art show. Keep checking back for new new art calls.
