The Commission is seeking two and three-dimensional works of art including prints, drawings, mixed media compositions, paintings, photographs, ceramics, and moveable sculptures. To expand the District’s collection further into new media forms of contemporary art, we strongly encourage video artists and other technological innovators to submit as well. Artists are also encouraged to submit works in series. Work within a series will be counted individually as part of the allowable maximum for portfolio submissions from individual artists (10 works) and galleries (20 works). Representational, conceptual, and abstract works will be equally considered. This call is open to all artists who reside or maintain studio space in the Washington, DC metropolitan area; including surrounding areas in Maryland and Virginia.
Each individual artist is allowed to submit up to 10 images for consideration and all artwork submitted must be available for purchase and review upon submission (see calendar for dates). Galleries are allowed to submit up to 20 images of any combination of two or more represented artists. Artwork must be created with archival materials and be no larger in size than 96″ in any direction. Weight shall not exceed 100 lbs.
This call is open to all artists who reside or maintain studio space in the Washington, DC metropolitan area; including surrounding areas in Maryland and Virginia. However, preference will be given to District residents. A separate application is available to Washington, DC galleries to submit on behalf of metropolitan area artists only. Both applications can be found at http://dcarts.slideroom.com
