Five Deuces Galleria Presents

SHADES OF BLUE @ Five Deuces Galleria

Saturday, April 6, 2024 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM


Five Deuces Galleria is excited to announce our newest Call for Artists “SHADES OF BLUE”, where we invite you to explore the beauty and versatility of the color blue through your artwork. Whether it's the tranquil hues of the sky, the deep depths of the ocean, or the myriad emotions associated with this captivating color, we want to see your interpretation!

Your artwork should predominantly feature the color blue.  All mediums are welcome: painting, sculpture, photography, mixed media, and more.  This exhibit, in the main gallery, will be promoted for viewing and sale throughout the month of April.  Further details and dates can be found below.  

From serene pastels to vibrant cobalts, from icy glacial blues to warm Mediterranean hues - let the versatility of this color inspire you.  All perspectives and creativity are welcome. 

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: Monday, March 18, 2024 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.

Any artwork that is sold during the exhibition may be taken by the buyer immediately after purchase.  The artist may replace the sold artwork with approval from the curators.  


If you have any additions / changes / deletions for work after you submit for this call, you can make changes up until noon on the day the call closes.  Please contact me directly at, and I will re-open your submission.  The system will not charge you again.   

***Once curation is complete, selected work is considered to be committed to the show for the duration.  Five Deuces Galleria will begin promoting the shows and the accepted work immediately after curation.  If a buyer contacts you directly for purchase at any time between curation and the end of the show, the expectation is for you to direct the buyer to Five Deuces Galleria for completion of the sale.  

We rely heavily on the good ethics and morals of our artists to ensure that the representation and sales process is done with integrity.  


The artist retains all copyrights to submitted images and represented artwork. Digital images submitted with the artist's entry are for exhibition selection only. Artists selected to exhibit grant Five Deuces Galleria the right to use the selected image(s) on printed materials, social media,  and the gallery website for promotional purposes only.

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:

How much is it to submit and are there any other fees during the submission process? 

The entry fee is $25 for a maximum of 10 works that you can submit. This means that for $25, you will be able to submit up to 10 individual works of art. The Cloudfolios system will charge you a 10% processing fee. That means that the submission will cost you a total of $27.50. The gallery DOES NOT charge you a 10% processing fee. The additional $2.50 charged does not go to the gallery. It goes to CloudFolios, a separate company. We simply utilize the Cloudfolios software.
