Five Deuces Galleria Presents

PASSIONS @ Five Deuces Galleria

Saturday, October 7, 2023 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM


SUBMISSION DEADLINE: Monday, September 18, 2023 11:59pm

Our call for submissions for our October + November TWO months-long “Exploring PASSIONS Through Art” gallery exhibit seeks original, unique artwork that encompasses a broad spectrum of intense emotions, interests, and desires that drive individuals to pursue and express their deepest inspirations and motivations.

Passions are the driving forces that ignite our souls, fuel our creativity, and give meaning to our lives. They represent the profound connection between our inner selves and the external world. Whether it's a love for nature, a fascination with a particular subject, a commitment to a cause, an insatiable curiosity, or an unwavering dedication to an art form, passions encompass all that we hold dear and devote ourselves to.

A few ideas to fuel your creativity:

  • Love for Nature: A deep connection with the natural world, celebrating landscapes, flora, and fauna in all their beauty and complexity.

  • Intellectual Pursuits: Passion for knowledge, exploration, and the quest for understanding, expressed through intellectual or abstract art forms.

  • Social Justice and Activism: Art that advocates for societal change, raises awareness about important issues, and expresses passionate beliefs in equality and justice.

  • Personal Relationships: Exploring the complexities of human connections, family bonds, friendships, and the emotions that underpin them.

  • Spirituality and Faith: Art that reflects an individual's profound devotion to their spiritual beliefs and experiences.

  • Sports and Physical Activities: Celebrating the exhilaration of physical prowess, competition, and the joy of movement.

  • Culinary Arts: Artistic expressions of passion for food, cooking, and the sensory delights of gastronomy.

  • Music and Performing Arts: Capturing the emotional depth of musical compositions, dance performances, and the sheer passion of artists on stage.

Join us in celebrating the diverse tapestry of passions that enrich our lives and contribute to the colorful world of art. We look forward to witnessing the depth and breadth of your creative expressions.

Open to all ideas, styles, genres, and mediums.  All perspectives, craftsmanship and creativity are welcome. 

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: Monday, September 18, 2023 11:59pm

We are using CloudFolios to assist in curating the show.  If you don’t already have an account, you can set one up (free) during the submission process.  


  • Open to all mediums of art by artists who can coordinate a local drop off & pick up of any unsold work.  

  • All work must be for sale.  

  • All accepted artwork for the exhibit must be ready to hang.  

  • Submitted and accepted artwork should be priced equivalent to what you would sell it for on your own.  If an artwork sells during the exhibit the curators will work with you to replace it, thereby offering you additional sales opportunities.    

SUBMIT YOUR WORK HERE: SUBMIT YOUR WORK.  Please note, the images you submit with your work are 1) the primary tool the curators use to evaluate, accept, or reject a piece and 2) the same images the marketing team will use in promotional materials for accepted work throughout the duration of the exhibit, will be displayed in our online gallery, and will be included in our buyers guide.  While the images do not have to be perfect by a hired professional, unsatisfactory images will affect the curating.

Special Instructions


What is Cloudfolios? 

Cloudfolios is a platform we use to publish our art calls. Artists submitting their work for consideration will be doing so through the Cloudfolios system. 

How and when will I know if I've been accepted?

Every artist who submitted their work for consideration will be notified by email. Once the work is finalized, an email is sent to the artists automatically by the Cloudfolios system (the same system the artist used to submit). This email will let the artists know which works were accepted and which works were rejected. If you do not receive an email within a couple of days, please double check your spam folder.

What happens and or what do I do after I am accepted? 

Accepted artists can expect a follow-up email directly from the gallery congratulating them on their acceptance as well as very detailed instructions with their exhibiting details. 

How and when do I submit my biography and conceptual statements? 

Artists will be given detailed instructions through their exhibiting details on how to submit their statements. This requirement only applies to artists who are accepted.

Why is installation, audio, and video art not allowed?

We apologize for this exclusion. Our gallery at this time is not equipped to exhibit these particular mediums of art. We hope to change this in the future. 

If I submitted my work and I forgot to include other work, can my submission/application be reopened and can I add it?

Yes, you may. Please email us at: 

If my work was entirely rejected, can I inquire to know why?

Yes, you may. Please email us at:
