unframed Open Call for Submission

International Open Call unframed

unframed

Exhibition: January 25 – February 12, 2023
Submission Deadline: Wednesday, January 4th, 2023
Online until March 26, 2023

unframed is the theme of Propeller’s open call for local, national and international artists.

We are looking for artwork that does not use standard stretched canvas or wood panels and is not framed. Submit artwork on paper, textile, fibre, or unstretched canvas. We are looking for ingenuity and alternative ways of presenting work.

Feel liberated from the rigid constraints of frames, stretchers, and panels. Challenge yourself to create imaginative and experimental artwork.

Artworks can be mailed to the gallery or delivered in person on the days of intake.

Artworks listed for sale must be exclusive to Propeller for 60 days—the duration of the exhibition and the extended online shop period.

If any work listed for sale is sold during the 60-day period, whether through Propeller or independently by the artist, the commission must be paid to Propeller.

Propeller is free to use your submission material, without compensation, in any social media posting and catalogue publication of this exhibition.

Selection of Works

Due to space, we may not be able to accept large works. A maximum width of 36” is recommended. Submissions of larger works may be considered if there is space.

Although this is a non-juried show, we reserve the right to select those works that best embody the submission requirements and professional standards of Propeller Art Gallery.

Propeller Art Gallery shall not be liable for any loss, damage or deterioration of artworks at any time, while in our possession. We will notify the artist of any damage or deterioration to the work that we notice. Adequate insurance of the artworks while in the possession of Propeller Art Gallery is the responsibility of the Artist.
