#43ARTISTS will be the seventh on-line show from Cultivate and we think the 155th Cultivate show since that Netll Market takeover back in the summer of 2011 (something like 155 anyway, we might have missed on or two). #43ARTISTS will open on-line at 8pm Monday April 13th via the Organ magazine website at www.organthing.com. We will be personally inviting the majority of the artists but once again, the flow of artistic new blood is very important, there is an open call aspect, we would like to have around a dozen artists we don’t actually know yet. Check out the previous on-line show here on the organ website to get a flavour.
We are actually looking for exciting painters, installation artists, 3d artists, actually #43Artists is open to artists of all disciplines besides photography or digital art (nothing against either discipline and there are plenty of on-line outlets for both, this on-line show is not about digital art), the only this we really don’t want is a flat lifeless image of a painting, have a look at the last show, go grab a flavour and a feel, make your image feel like a piece of art hanging on a gallery wall.
If you wish to be considered in terms of being part of #43Artists then simply submit up to five images with titles and a link to your artist website. The minimum requirement for this on-line show is that you have a working well maintained up-to-date website we can link to so people can find out more about you – a working website mind you, not just a Facebook page or an instagram account or heaven forbid one of those dreadful Saatchi pages.
The call is open to anyone from anywhere on the planet , there are no fees or costs involved, we’re not paying anything in terms of gallery rents and such for this one so why would we even dream of charging just to open an e.mail or to post images on line? Sure, there’s our time involved but hey, we detest galleries who charge for just opening an e.mail and then claiming it to be admin costs. All we ask from you, is that if you are selected you put up links and share details on your own websites and social media feeds.
If you wish to submit to #43Artists then please do, once you do we promise to get back within two or three days with a yes or no, if it is a yes we’ll come back and ask for all the details we need, if we don’t hear from us then please do check your spam bins and such, (we check ours a everyday). Deadline is end of day March 22nd 2020. Don’t be leaving it until the last minute though, you have more chance if you don’t leave it to the last minute…
The show is being curated by the Cultivate team of Sean Worrall and Emma Harvey, we are first and foremost working artists.
Submissions via e,mail to info at cultivategallery dot com and clearly marked OPEN CALL #43Artists in the subject line please.
