Art Galleries Shift From Once-A-Year Calls To Accepting #Artist Submissions Year-Round

Yesterday, we posted here on how New York art galleries have begun to accept artist submissions on an ongoing basis.

As we double checking and triple checking every link in each gallery listing in our International Art Gallery Directory of over five thousand galleries–available here and here–we’re discovering more and more updated art gallery submission guidelines adopting this “more fluid” artist submission policy.

Here is another–

Art in General in New York City, writes–  “Responding to the current state of artistic and curatorial practice, Art in General’s Open Call has shifted from its once-a-year online deadline to a more fluid model of receiving and reviewing artists’ work. Artists are encouraged to submit project proposals at any point throughout the year.” Proposals are accepted via email –read the full submission details here.

 

For more opportunities get our International Art Gallery Directory of over five thousand galleries–available here and here.

NEW YORK Arts Projects Now Accepting Artist Submissions on an Ongoing Basis

artbridge

 

We’ve been busy double checking and triple checking every link in each gallery listing in our International Art Gallery Directory of over five thousand galleries–available here and here.  Public art projects are listed in our Directory of Art Consultants here and here.

Some art projects put on exhibitions and public art projects. To save time and cut back on administrative tasks, many galleries and projects have begun accepting ongoing submissions.

The New York ARTBRIDGE PROJECTS  is now accepting art submission on an ongoing basis! That means that your art submissions will be considered for all ArtBridge exhibitions that do not have sufficient time for an open call. Artists may submit as many individual pieces or series as they wish. Series must not exceed ten images.  All genres of art, except film and video, are allowed –though film and video stills are permitted.

560+ page e-list you will find nearly 10,000 art galleries across the USA and Internationally-

In this 560+ page e-list you will find nearly 10,000 art galleries across the USA and Internationally– listed under headings for each USA state and internationally under each country heading. Every gallery listed contains one or more clickable links to the gallery website and additional project spaces, plus such information as physical address, mailing address, email contact, and the gallery submission guidelines!

Created with the artist in mind, we include alternative exhibition space, artist-run art galleries and co-op galleries–and so that you are able to quickly identify current opportunities to submit your art–we’ve use red highlighted text to indicate galleries that have open calls for submissions, ongoing calls, rolling acceptance of artist submissions, art galleries that currently accept artist submissions, and galleries that accept artist exhibition proposals or have ongoing open submission policies.

As we continually review each gallery in this e-list, we’ve noted a new trend for more fluid art submission policies being adopted by art galleries. That is, rather than post an annual call for submissions, galleries are beginning to accept artist submissions year-round.

New galleries open all the time, and we endeavor to continually add them–as other galleries move, and expand into multiple locations we track their growth. Some galleries close temporarily and we are always happy when they do reopen, and endeavor to keep track of their status. When a gallery does close permanently, their websites often remain active and are great resources. When a gallery site does go down, we mark it Domains for sale, so that artists may purchase one or more to take advantage of established art buying traffic.

Universities have art galleries that accept exhibition proposals and you will find the details, application process and submission guidelines in this e-list.

Once you purchase this e-list, you will continue to receive the revised and updated versions, sent to you via email, periodically.

Completely and 100% reviewed, revised, expanded and updated November & December 2016, with regular ongoing monthly reviews and updating as needed.

US + Euro Artists – Get Into The Asian Art Market: Over 200 Art Galleries in Hong Kong,Shanghai, Beijing + Tokyo

I do know a bit about Asia, from having lived as an expatriate in Tokyo, Japan, India and Hong Kong for a total of 4 years. It’s well know that any traveler may put their bags down on a busy sidewalk in Tokyo and walk away, with many thousands of people streaming past, and the bags will go untouched. In Tokyo, I recall seeing a small leather purse up on a stone wall each day as I walked to a small grocery nearby the house I lived in. After a few days of seeing the purse there I became curious and had a look inside, surprised to find that it contained a quantity of cash! I even counted it. There was the equivalent of about $100USD in Japanese yen. Then I put the purse back on the wall. Locals commonly commented that “the person who dropped it may come back looking for it”–and that’s why no one touches purses or bags left on sidewalks. For an American to see that in a major urban area was quite amazing.

Of course there is a certain amount of crime in any county, but often in Asia it is organized crime and easily avoided. In China, I repeatedly encountered instances of superstition against cheating anyone in business. Small business owners considered it bad luck to cheat or steal from customers.

So what does that have to do with art galleries?

I have heard American artist state that they are fearful of shipping their art to foreign art galleries due to possible expenses from legal hassles. Based on my experiences, I would  trust most Asian art galleries to sell my art should they be so inclined.

As part of my personal research, I have compiled

a list of Asian art galleries for American and European artists thinking about getting into the Asian art market.

You won’t need a knowledge of Asian languages or need to employ a translator. Even in 2013, many Americans seem to think that they will find it difficult to approach Asian art galleries due to a language barrier. But the over 200 art galleries in China that are on my list, link to websites in both English and Chinese–some  sites are also in additional languages such as Japanese, Korean, and German.

The list of China art galleries consists primarily of galleries in the large cities of Hong Kong, Beijing, and Shanghai.  A few of these galleries in Mainland China also have additional galley locations in Taipei, Taiwan, and Seoul, S. Korea.

Yes, the list contains elegant galleries such as Chambers Fine Art in an architectural space designed by architect Ai Wei Wei. Chambers Fine Art was established in New York in 2000, and  is one of the leading galleries in the United States and China, along with famous James Cohen Gallery with locations in New York City and Shanghai, China.

But also, the list contains such galleries as–

State of the Art Gallery in Hong Kong, a somewhat lesser known that has a very Western image.

Screen shot 2013-02-05 at 2.02.12 PM

 And the grass-roots effort in an apartment complex turned art gallery at the C & G Apartment Art Gallery in Hong Kong, that is open to exchanges and collaborations with artists and art organizations.

There are many others. So that artists seeking a fit for their work may access a broad range of opportunities I’ve include the a wide variety of art galleries on the list.

I am still adding Japanese art galleries  to the list, and currently have 58  art galleries primarily  located in Tokyo. If you are looking for art consultants in Asia, find our additional list of art consultants here. If you would like to license your art with Asian companies or find an Artist Agent, check this list.

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,  http://tinneycontemporary.com/

Electric Works began printmaking in 1981, working with artists who are masters of strong visual content and with each printmaking project they have combined traditional techniques with new contemporary art challenges in an attempt to reinvent just what a print is, making the most ambitious projects possible.

In the Electric Works online bookstore you will find several prints in limited editions of 100 selling for only $40.00 each.

I enjoy reviewing small art publishing companies such as Electric Works, though hard to categorize for our PDF resource lists–are they an art licensing company, a gallery or a store?

You’ll find thousands of more links to art sales sites, art galleries and art licensing companies on our Artist Marketing Resources share lists. We’ve noticed an increase of sales of our PDF resources lists that sell for just $18.95. You can pay with PayPal or buy with Google Checkout** via the links below.

Of course you are not going to go to the top blue chip New York City art galleries or send jpegs of your art to such galleries. Why not find art galleries locally first, and then if you want to expand nationally and internationally contact galleries that accept email submissions. Yes, there are a number of galleries that prefer email submissions as first contact from artists, and many state this on their website.
