Call for Submissions Reinvention II
International Deadline: October 27, 2018 – To celebrate our move to a new location in the West Town Arts District on Chicago Ave., we invite artists to submit small works—no more than 15 inches wide— to our open-walls exhibit ‘Reinvention II’.
Once a year we open our gallery for artists to exhibit their work with other many other artists. This is an opportunity for emerging artists’, young artists, first exhibitors and experienced artists to show new ideas and experimentation together, and to create a wonderfully diverse array of work. In the past these kind of shows have been very successful exhibitions with a wide range of art, all expressing a visual voice.
Exhibition Dates: Oct. 31 – Nov. 24, 2018.
Open to all artists, nationwide and international. “Reinvention 11” will be an Open Walls Exhibition, giving artists the opportunity to exhibit their work at ARC without a juror. All work submitted is accepted as long as it conforms to size limits.
All mediums and materials are eligible including video and performance. In order to be in the show, works can be no more than 15 inches wide. (There is no restriction on height.) Also due to space limitations, no projections or media-based installations will be accepted. Video work must be delivered on a jump drive to play on our screens. You may also submit your own screen to display your work. If our screens are being used, you might be part of a sequence of several videos.
The cost is $25.00 for each piece submitted. We are making the cost low so that many artists can contribute.

Works will be for sale unless noted as NFS (not for sale) on the entry form. ARC does not take commission on any work sold, but will act as a liaison for sales of the artists’ work. However, any work sold and paid for via Paypal will have the small fee deducted from the sale amount.
ARC Gallery and Educational Foundation is a non-profit, woman-run cooperative gallery dedicated to providing alternative space exhibition opportunities for innovative artists outside the commercial gallery system. Since 1973 ARC has given exposure and support to artists, providing an atmosphere for the continued development of artistic potential and experimentation.
ARC is run entirely by its women artist members; as a non-profit exhibition space. ARC receives some support from outside funding sources but not enough to cover our operating expenses. Thus, to provide the space and services we offer to exhibiting artists, we defray our expenses by charging exhibition fees. Each of the rental spaces in the gallery actually costs twice as much as we charge the artists.
