Artist Call Detail

The Big Artshow
For California artists

Bigger is better.

Large artwork provides an awe factor that smaller sized pieces cannot, prompting a unique viewing interaction. Through their size we can visually and sometimes physically immerse ourselves into a piece. In this call for submissions, we want to see art that impacts us both through it's size and technique!

Calls are open to all local, domestic, national and international professional and amateur artists. All art mediums will be considered in this call for submissions, from photography, wall sculpture, fabric, mixed media, all paintings and drawings including, oil, acrylic, pastels, ink, graphite, etc. Sizes up to 12 feet are acceptable. Work must be able to be hung on a wall to be considered for the live exhibition. Freestanding 3D artworks will be displayed online only. We are now accepting video and poetry entries for online shows.

Accepted entries for this online exhibition will be judged again in the coming months for a collective live exhibition at our Los Angeles gallery. The artists will be asked if they wish to submit their artwork for the collective exhibition, which is not a requirement to being a part of the online exhibition.


Cost: $35 for 3 entries, $5 for additional entries.
