Open Call: Ōkeanós
May 31st, 2019 11:59 PM PST
Humans of the Earth: HOTE Gallery is accepting submission for its "Ōkeanós" exhibition.
The exhibit will focus on our oceans, plastic pollution, rising sea levels, marine life, sustainability, ecology, pollution, and the environment.
“Humans are transforming Earth’s natural landscapes so dramatically that as many as one million plant and animal species are now at risk of extinction, posing a dire threat to ecosystems that people all over the world depend on for their survival, a sweeping new United Nations assessment has concluded.”
“Human actions threaten more species with global extinction now than ever before,” the report concludes, estimating that “around 1 million species already face extinction, many within decades, unless action is taken.”
This call is open to all artists, local and international; whose work fits the theme.
If you are submitting a proposal for an installation, please state the details of your proposal, and include any sketches, blueprints in the description page.
Deadline for submissions is May 31st, 2019 at 11:59 pm PST. There is a $20 entry fee. Incomplete applications will not be reviewed.
All Artwork submitted must be available for sale in order to be included in our exhibition. The Gallery will retain a commission of 50% of the sale price on artwork sold.
Delivery of insured artwork to the Gallery is the responsibility of the artist.
