Green Hill Gallery EXHIBITION SPRING 2021





Green Hill Gallery is pleased to announce the open call for the new exhibition on the topic of identity, connectivity and community. This exhibition wants to be a journey in the discovery of what identity means nowadays and how it can be influenced by changes, as well as by the way one connects with oneself, others and the outside world. It challenges artists to explore the confrontation between showing oneself to oneself and showing oneself to others.

We invite emerging and established artists working in any medium from Berlin and from all over the world to participate in this call, as long as the topic is explored through the artwork. Please be aware that, since the Green Hill Gallery is run by the non-profit organization Kulturschöpfer e.V., accepted artists living outside Berlin will have to take care of the transportation of their artworks.

The exhibition will be displayed in our Green Hill Gallery and will be part of our diverse identity project. The project will entail additional events to explore the concept of identity and connectivity from different perspectives (online and/or offline, depending on the Coronavirus regulations).

After a very successful first edition in December 2020, we have decided to start our 2021 program with “WHAT IS ART” second edition. 

While some artists are keeping a very traditional approach to art, others are taking risks into the unknown and there has always been a constant debate about “What Is Art” and what makes it valuable. 

In contemporary world success can be seen in both approaches, great examples are Damien Hirst and David Hockney, two of the worlds most famous and richest artists and yet with such a different approach to contemporary art. 

The purpose of this exhibition is to create a dialogue between different approaches to contemporary art and to demonstrate that either way can be successful. 

There is no subject restrictions just a couple of guidelines. 

Eligible media but not limited: 




-digital art 





To make a submission is absolutely free but we do charge a £165 fee for each  participating artist as we only charge 15% sales commission and that includes: 

-printed catalogs 


-graphic designer 


-mix finger food 


-professional photographer 



Important dates: 

- the open call will run until 07 April. 

- artworks delivery date is 15 April.  

- the exhibition will run from 16 April until 22 April with a private view on 16 April - 6 to 9 pm at our gallery space in Aldgate. 


We are situated right in the heart of artistic London: 

- Aldgate East 1 min 

- Aldgate 2 min 

- Whitechapel 4 min

- Shoreditch high street 8 min

- Liverpool Street 9 min

- Tower Hill 9 min

- Monument 12 min 

- Bank 12 min 

- Cannon Street 15 min 

- Old street 18 min 

- Mansion house 18 min 

- Moorgate 18 min 


We had a lot of enquires from foreign artists to exhibit with us but sometimes shipping the work to London in time might be a bit difficult in this challenging period, that’s why we’ve come up with an alternative! If you are one of the accepted artist and you find it hard to ship your work to us, you can send us photos of your work and we can print and frame it for you. 

We have 3 available sizes for the frame: 

32/32 cm

30/40 cm 

40/50 cm 


As some of you might know, UK will be in lockdown until mid February, after that all regions will get back to the tier system. 

The massive vaccination campaign and the coming of spring gives us a lot of hope that things will slowly get back to normal. 

If by any chance London will still be under a lot of restrictions, we will postpone our show until late March or mid April. 

For this event we will have time slots of 30 minutes each- between  6 and  9 pm interval. For more info or to book a time slot simply email us at 


As we run multiple open calls, please make sure you include in the email line the open call you apply for. 

Good luck to you all!

Open Call for Artists--Art Auction 2021--Crocker Art Museum




The Crocker Art Museum’s 43rd annual Art Auction season is upon us! Building on the success of last year’s virtual auction, the upcoming 2021 Art Auction season will feature the same lively events – Art Auction and Big Names, Small Art (BNSA) – in a new hybrid virtual and in-person format.

Silent Art Auction and BNSA will be held virtually on the Bidsquare platform, with bidding scheduled to open in mid-May and auctions set to close the weekend of June 5–6. In addition, a small selection of artworks will also be featured in a socially distanced Live Art Auction event in the Museum’s courtyard on the evening of Saturday, June 5.

All Silent and Live Art Auction works will be included in a special exhibition at the Crocker, on view from May 23 – June 6, 2021.

Last year’s virtual auctions drew an incredible audience of more than 3 million viewers and 1,000 bidders from around the world. The success of these events can be attributed to the high-quality art contributed by regionally and nationally recognized artists and the Museum’s increased efforts to promote artists and artworks across all platforms in new and innovative ways. We hope you will consider submitting artworks to the Art Auction and BNSA for consideration.
