ROYGBIV

Eligibility:

Second Street Gallery is currently accepting submissions for our June/July 2021 exhibition, ROYGBIV. 

In Season 46, Second Street Gallery curator, Kristen Chiacchia, challenged a group of local artists to explore new ideas of tones, texture, composition, and expression using only black, white, and shades of grey. In June of Season 47 SSG will present ROYGBIV, an exhibition that will assign one color on the visible light spectrum to seven participating artists. Each artist will create works of art using only shades of their assigned color, following the rich tradition of monochromatic painting in avant-garde visual art throughout the 20th and 21st centuries.

The first month of the exhibition will be held during Pride Month and will involve programming to connect with and celebrate Charlottesville’s LGBTQIA+ community. 

Deadline:

Eligibility:

Second Street Gallery is pleased to announce that submissions are open for the Third Annual Teeny Tiny Trifecta exhibition, a group show to be held in SSG’s Dové Gallery September 4 - 25, 2020.

The exhibition kicks off the gallery’s 47th Season and will consist of a collection of 3 works of art from each artist, each measuring 9 inches or smaller, from a carefully curated selection of artists. Last year’s exhibition featured 85 artists and was a huge success with over 750 attendees at the opening reception and 1,500 visitors to the exhibition during the month it was on view.

Inspired by both Cabinet of Curiosities as well as the Paris Salons of the 19th Century, the exhibition aims to showcase the wide range of talented artists in Virginia (and beyond!) while providing an accessible introduction to contemporary art collecting. All work will be priced at $100, so this is a great opportunity for collectors of all budgets to own a work of art by some of their favorite artists.

PLEASE NOTE: this will be the only open call for applications to exhibit at Second Street Gallery in 2020. There will be a separate call for artists for a small group show of 5-10 artists that will be held in Dové Gallery in June 2021.

We encourage everyone to apply! And please feel free to share with other artists who you think would be a good fit.

The deadline to submit your application is June 1st.
