Call for Artists

Call for Artist Submissions

Landing Contemporary Art proudly hosts a call for emerging artists to join our opening roster. With a mission to identify and showcase up and coming artists, LCA will organize select exhibitions and events along the East Coast in addition to selling works directly online. Without the limits of a traditional brick and mortar gallery, artworks will be displayed in unique, participatory event spaces that will engage communities in meaningful dialogue. LCA will serve as a springboard for its artists to attain press coverage, recognition, and acquisitions by new and established collectors.

Artists must be based in the US to apply. All themes and mediums are welcome.

Open Call - Par Excellence Redux

Call for Proposals 
Par Excellence Redux
curated by Christopher Jobson, founder of Colossal
Elmhurst Art Museum

In a unique collision of recreation and art, the Elmhurst Art Museum will commission an 18-hole artist-designed golf course in homage to the wildly popular 1988 exhibition Par Excellence at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. The fully playable course will be conceived and fabricated by a new group of contemporary artists, designers, and architects selected through an open call process. Designed to fill the entirety of the museum’s interior galleries, the course will be comprised of a surprisingly varied collection of themes and forms, promising an unusual twist on a familiar pastime.  

Shabby Tabby Cafe Announces Debut Art Show “Catcaphony”

The Shabby Tabby Cafe, which serves as a haven for adoptable cats, has just announced their first ever art exhibition, “Catcaphony.” The Sayville-based cafe is now seeking calls for artists—preferably of small postcard-sized pieces; 10” inches at absolute maximum—who work in a variety of mediums and themes. While work featuring cats will be most befitting of the space, all pieces will be considered provided that the imagery is non-violent, non-sexual, and therefore suitable for all audiences.
