Art Galleries With Submission Guidelines

As I wrote in a previous blog post, I’ve noticed a growing trend for art galleries to publish Calls for Artist Submissions. As I continue to research art galleries internationally, I also often find galleries that accept submissions on an ongoing basis, and have compiled these galleries into a list of thousands of links in PDF form, specifically as a resources for artists.

Here is an example of one gallery with submission guidelines posted on their website–

Tinney Contemporary,

Artist Submissions Tinney Contemporary Gallery represents a diverse portfolio of internationally known artists.  Our gallery’s focus is on contemporary painting, sculpture, and photography by established artists.

      Yes, I have noticed the same. Could be a little bit fashionable to promote a more *cutting edge* image by opening gallery doors. Exclusivity isn’t what it used to be. Plus, it is an easy way for galleries to bring in talent for review–money saving and time saving too. Get first look before another gallery snaps them up. Yes, I am aware of many new spaces opening as well, in cities all over the world.
