Calls for Entry
2016 MEMBERS’ EXHIBITION, DECEMBER 17 THROUGH JANUARY 14
Opening Event: Saturday, December 17, 5-7 PM, preceded by a private reception for participating artists from 4-5 PM
During the weeks of December 17, 2016 through January 14, 2017, the work of ATHICA members is featured in this first annual members’ exhibition. As an all-volunteer and membership-based organization, ATHICA serves as a community-hub for artists seeking conversation, collaboration, and a venue for sharing and experiencing contemporary art. The 2016 Members’ Exhibition is a prime opportunity for all of these essential components of the arts in Athens.
Open to all 2016 current and joining members, the exhibit is self-curated and will be installed by ATHICA board members and volunteers.
New and existing 2016 members are invited to complete the submission form by December 8, 2016 in order to submit a work of their choosing to the gallery. Artists are asked to deliver their works on Sunday, December 11, 2016 from 1-6 PM. Two dimensional work should not exceed four feet in any direction. All 2-D works must be delivered ready to hang with wire. Artists with 3-D, video, and performance work should indicate their needs in order to coordinate options and available space. Artists will need to pick-up their works on Sunday, January 15 from 1-6 PM.
General Submission Policy
ATHICA issues a general call annually in July for proposals from curators, collectives & artists with challenging, progressive or innovative projects and cohesive bodies of work. Entry fees go to support the operations of the ATHICA gallery. We are able to accommodate large-scale sculpture and/or installation. See Our Space for images and a downloadable floorplan. Projects that depend on darkness or enclosed spaces are not advisable, unless the artist can supply labor and materials to create internal spaces in an open and naturally lit space. Proposals are reviewed by the exhibitions committee for possible consideration in the programming for the coming year. Artists’ submissions may be retained for a number of years until an appropriate project arises. We make every effort to provide a response to every submission to specific and general calls. If you have a question or concern, please contact us via email to firstname.lastname@example.org, as we are unable to return phone calls in response to inquiries.
