Artist Call – Pop Culture

What’s hip? What’s in? What’s cool? What’s now?

For this call we want to see not only the current interpretations of mainstream culture, but also the nostalgic fads from past generations. From Andy Warhol to Hello Kitty, we want to see your artistic pop art creations of these mass media innovations.

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 both live and online shows.

Accepted entries for this online exhibition will be judged again in the coming months for a collective live exhibition at our Pasadena Gallery in Spring 2014. 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.

DEADLINE FOR THIS CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: November 4, 2013

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

All submissions must represent the actual artwork as closely as possible. If your work is misrepresented in anyway– meaning the picture diverges greatly from what the work actually looks like in color, shape, or dimensions etc., we reserve the right to refuse to hang the artwork if it should be chosen for a live show.
