Want to have your artwork exhibited in a professional gallery setting? Friends of the Arts is hosting a community art exhibit at Jean Stephen Galleries in St. Louis Park to help celebrate our local artists and provide an opportunity for artists and the community to connect with one another.
If you create visual art of any kind and you live, work, study, or have a significant connection to St. Louis Park, this exhibit is for you! We welcome submissions from artists of all ages and experience levels.
Call For Art
We are seeking submissions of 2D and 3D art from artists who live, work, study, or have another significant connection to St. Louis Park. Artwork may be any size, but space is limited--if your artwork is too large for us to include, we will contact you about submitting a smaller piece. All artwork must be original, first quality, and ready to display. 2D work must be dry, framed (or gallery-wrapped with finished edges for works on canvas), and securely wired for hanging (no sawtooth hangers). 3D work must be stable and structurally sound. No pedestals will be provided--if your 3D work requires a pedestal for display, you must provide your own.
Artists may submit up to three entries of any medium to be displayed in the exhibit. The selection committee has the right to select if all or any of the submitted art will be displayed. Selections will be made and all artists will be notified by September 18.
Artists are responsible for delivering artwork to Jean Stephen Galleries during drop-off hours, 3-6pm on Tuesday, October 9. Artwork may be picked up from the gallery on Friday, October 26, 3-6pm.
