Solo Exhibition Opportunity

The Painting Center, an artist-run non-profit gallery in the heart of Chelsea, announces a call for submissions for two solo exhibition opportunities in the Project Room space of the gallery. The two solo exhibitions will take place in 2025, and each separate exhibition will have a run time of four weeks. If you are selected, there is no additional fee for showing your work in our space. Chase Cantwell and Kristin Osterberg will select the two artists for the two solo exhibitions. We invite visual artists of all disciplines to submit work. Please present strong examples of the works you would include in your solo exhibition if selected for this opportunity.

Common Threads: Art & Fiber

Fiber Arts have a long tradition not only of utility but of storytelling and personal expression. This exhibit celebrates the hard work and creativity of fiber artists, from quilting and embroidery to textiles, weaving, or mixed media collage. This call is open to all artists, age 18 or older, living within the United States. Artists are invited to enter innovative art created from natural fibers as well as plant and animal fibers. The majority of the art piece must be fiber component or textile technique. We look forward to showcasing a wide range of contemporary and innovative wall hung works where fiber is the primary medium.

Open Wide! is the inaugural juried exhibition for the brand new, Minneapolis-based online gallery, 119 North Weatherly. Eligibility is open to artists around the world age 18 and older. This is an online-only exhibition, so there is no need to ship the artwork unless it sells.

No video or 3-D submissions, please. Artists may submit up to three images for a fee of $10 each ($30 max).
