CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: SPLASH OF RED

Five Deuces Galleria is seeking submissions for our upcoming 6-WEEKS LONG guest art exhibition, "Splash of Red." 

Red, a color of passion, intensity, and emotion, has captivated artists for centuries.  Whether it's the fiery glow of a sunset, the bold strokes of abstract expressionism, or the symbolic significance of red in cultural contexts, we want to see your unique perspective.

Join us in celebrating the power and allure of the color red. Let your creativity flow freely, and then capture the intensity, passion, and variety that the color red can bring to art.

Submission Guidelines:

  • Artists may submit up to 10 works for consideration.

  • The exhibition is open to any theme, allowing artists the freedom to express their creativity without limitations.

  • We welcome submissions in any medium, including but not limited to painting, mixed media, photography, sculpture, and more.

As one of the premier art galleries in the area, we are dedicated to promoting and celebrating the diverse talents of emerging and established artists. We look forward to hosting, promoting, exhibiting, and selling your work in this group show. 

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: Thursday, July 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.  

ELIGIBILITY:  

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

  • All submissions must be original works of art created by the artist.

  • 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

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS 

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: FiveDeucesGalleria@gmail.com 

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

Yes, you may. Please email us at: FiveDeucesGalleria@gmail.com

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.
